If you've never tried Zucchini courgettes as a pasta replacement, you're missing out! This month's 'Healthy Eating' recipe is for a delicious and quick recipe for a Zucchini courgette meal with a homemade veggie sauce from scratch.

This is a hearty, delicious and filling meal that's easy to prepare that will definitely trick you into thinking you've prepared your favourite comfort food.
What you'll need:
Portions: 3 - 4

Note: You can purchase pre-made Zucchini courgettes in packages at most local grocery stores but we found ours at Superstore in the prepared food section for a very reasonable price. This makes it easier to skip the hassle of trying to prepare them yourself.
- 5 Handfuls of Baby Kale
1. Place all ingredients (aside from courgettes and kale) in big wok. Cook on medium low.
2. After a few minutes of tomatoes searing, break them open with fork so that innards are exposed. Add black olives after they've been cut in half.
3. Once sauce is mixed, add zucchini courgettes and baby kale to wok on low heat, slowly stirring and combining.
4. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
Important: low heat is key!!!
Not only is this a super delicious and quick recipe, another perk is that you only dirty one pot to prepare it!
