Pistachio Pesto Zucchini Pasta

Mmm, nutty, flavorful pistachio pesto and zucchini noodles make for the perfect dish! I love exploring other options besides pasta noodles to cook with. The zucchini gives the dish extra crunch and flavor. Add in some extra bold basil microgreens, pistachios and fresh basil leaves to garnish!

Ingredients:

  • 4 large zucchini, spiralized
  • Pistachio pesto

ย 

Garnish:

  • Bold basil microgreens
  • Pistachios, roasted and salted
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Spiralize your zucchini into noodles (the zucchini noodles do tend to cook down, so if 4 zucchini are not enough, you can always do more).

  2. Prepare your pistachio pesto in advance to have ready for your noodles.

  3. Add your zucchini noodles into a medium sized skillet with a little olive oil over medium-high heat and cook for 5 minutes or until tender.

  4. When the โ€œzoodlesโ€ are ready, add in your pistachio pesto. I add in about a half a cup, but add enough to your liking. Stir to combine and let cook for another minute or two.

  5. When your pasta is ready, let cool and add to your plate. Top off with parmesan cheese, extra bold basil microgreens, fresh basil leaves, more pistachios and salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Enjoy this amazing dish! Share the love with your friends and family! :D
