Courgettes and Tofu Pasta

This pasta is absolutely delicious and it doesn't take long to prepare. It's a bless after a long day. The courgettes becomes like a angel hair pasta and it combined with the tofu and smoked sea salt is to die for. You can sprinkle any vegetable cheese you like on top but I actually prefer without as the combination of flavours in this recipe is perfect. I hope you like it!
