Pesto Zucchini Noodles

Share this!

Pesto zucchini noodles 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. 

Pesto Zucchini Noodles Recipe


3 cups baby spinach leaves

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 1/2 cloves of garlic

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (you can omit this for a dairy free version and the result is still delicious)

3 cups spiralized zucchini


Sautée spiralized zucchini until tender in a pan with a little extra virgin olive oil on medium heat. Add all the other ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend/process until smooth. Toss the zucchini noodles with the pesto and garnish with extra Parmesan cheese and dried chili peppers. Makes about 6 servings of pesto zucchini noodles.
