Pasta with Courgette and Anchovy

I never really jumped on the spiralizer wagon of a few years ago as I prefer not to eliminate food groups (like carbs) unless I absolutely have to. I do, however using spiralled vegetables as an accompaniment in pasta and Courgette Pasta with Anchovy has become a firm lunch-time favourite served, in my case, with gluten-free pasta. This is perfect for sunny alfresco lunches or if you fancy a lighter meal over the warmer months.
