Low Carb Spiralized Zucchini Noodles With Pesto
Spiralized zucchini noodles with spinach pesto are a great option when you’re craving a rich bowl of pasta but don’t want to consume all those carbs. This low carb keto diet friendly pesto sauce has plenty of flavour from the basil, Parmesan cheese, and fresh garlic, and it’s quite nutrient dense due to the baby spinach and walnuts.
