I’ve been into making simple meals these days. Life has been super busy with a Hawaiian vacation, crazy work schedule and the purchase of a new house! This means lots of quick, simple meals!
The other day in the grocery store I picked up some pesto and read the recipe idea on the label (you get some great ideas that way!). It said to stir in 1-2 tbsp of pesto per serving of pasta…sounds simple enough! I decided to use zucchini noodles since I bought a big bag at costco and wanted something light and “springy”!
Feel free to leave them raw or sauté them gently in a pan before adding the pesto.
– 3 medium-sized zucchini, made into zoodles
– 2-3 tbsp pesto (I didn’t make my own but bonus points if you do!)
1. Using a spiralizer, make zoodles from the zucchini. I have a hand-held one but you can also make “fettuccine” ribbons using a standard vegetable peeler too!
2. Either saute the zoodles in a pan to soften or serve them raw. Mix pesto into the noodles and let them sit for about 5 minutes to absorb the flavour!
