Ingredients

  • 2 zucchini
  • 10 cherry tomatoes

Pesto

  • 1 cup basil fresh
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • To make the pesto, place the basil, walnuts, garlic and cheese into a food processor. Slowly add the olive oil and lemon juice until mixed well. Set aside.
  • For the zucchini noodles, cut the ends off of the zucchini and then place into a spiralizer. I like to use the Paderno as it makes making zoodles quick and easy.
  • If you want to heat the zucchini noodles, place into a sauce pan on medium heat with a tablespoon of olive oil. If you want to eat them cold, just toss them into the mixing bowl.
  • Once you have all of the noodles made, stir in the tomatoes and the pesto and serve.
