If you’re feeling like making pasta tonight, try this simple and super quick recipe. Created by nutritionist and yoga teacher, Lola Berry, it uses zucchini pasta but you can use gluten-free pasta if you prefer.

Serves 2

2 zucchini, grated lengthways or spiralised
100ml extra-virgin olive oil
1 red chilli, finely chopped (optional)
1 tbsp capers
3 garlic cloves, finely diced
3 anchovy fillets (optional)
Salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper
Basil and coriander leaves, torn, to serve


1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil over a medium heat, add the zucchini strips and cook for 2–3 minutes. Drain and set aside.

2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chilli, capers, garlic and anchovies (if using) and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until the garlic is translucent and the anchovies have melted into the oil.

3. Tip the still-warm zucchini strips into the frying pan and give everything a good old toss about. Season with salt and pepper and mix one final time, then divide between two bowls and top with a little basil and coriander. Delish!
