Slow cook the beef mince together with chopped onions, garlic, tomato passata and seasoning in a slow cooker for a few hours before you’re ready to assemble and eat. The juices should all have reduced so the mince os browned and sauce is reduced and thickened.
Shallow fry the courgettes very quickly in a little olive oil so they remain firm
Add the mince mixture to your serving of courgetti spaghetti and grate a generous portion of Parmesan cheese over the top.
