  4. For the vegetable spaghetti, heat some olive oil in another pan. Then put the carrot spaghetti in first and cook briefly. Then add the baby marrow spaghetti and cook everything together to the desired doneness.

Chef Naledi's Tip: Always cook baby marrows on medium heat to avoid producing excess water. South Africa’s famous local chutney works well in this recipe.
