Instructions

1

Spinach Pesto Zoodles

2

Serves 3-4:

3

4 zucchinis, spiralized

4

¼ cup spinach pesto

5

Salt and black pepper, to taste

6

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

7

Optional:

8

• Crushed red pepper flakes

9

• Grated parmesan cheese

10

• Cherry tomatoes, halved

11

Place a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Sauté the zoodles in 3 batches cooking each batch no longer than 1 minute. Cooking them longer will release too much liquid and they will become mushy.

12

Transfer each batch to a bowl. Once they are all cooked, add them back to the pan along with the pesto and mix them together over medium heat for 1 more minute until the pesto is incorporated.

13

Serve topped with crushed red pepper flakes, parmesan cheese, and some cherry tomatoes. Grilled chicken or shrimp goes great with this dish. Any leftovers can be refrigerated. Enjoy!
