  • 175g spaghetti
  • 250g courgettes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 165g pack extra large raw king prawns
  • 4 tbsp Plants By Deliciously Ella Green Chilli and Lime Dressing
  • 30g Parmigiano Reggiano, finely grated, plus extra to serve
  • 20g pack dill, leaves only, roughly chopped
  • Lime wedges, to serve


  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Cook the spaghetti according to pack instructions until al dente. Thinly slice the courgettes or use a julienne peeler to produce thin courgette ribbons, if you prefer.

  2. Heat the oil in a wide frying pan over a high heat. Sear the prawns for 2 minutes until pink and opaque, then add the courgette.

  3. Season and cook for 2 minutes more, until the prawns are pink throughout and the courgette is just tender.

  4. Reserve a cup of pasta water, then drain. Using tongs, toss the pasta, dressing, cheese and most of the dill into the prawns. Loosen with 3-4 tbsp pasta water and jiggle it over the heat for a moment. Season to taste. Serve with more dill, cheese, and a lime wedge for squeezing over.

Cook’s tip

If you have a spiraliser knocking about the kitchen, it’s time to dig it out to make your own courgetti spaghetti.
