Recipe type: appetizer, main
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 10 mins
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 3 large zucchini - spiraled
  • olive oil
  • pesto sauce - you can use store-bought or homemade (I have done both before)
  • my homemade pesto: fresh cilantro, basil, cashews, garlic, olive oil, lime juice (squeezed), jalapeno peppers, sea salt and pepper, various dried spices - I apologize that I didn't pay much attention to amounts here...I was basically just 'eyeballing' and tossing the ingredients into the food processor! I will update with specifics, when I make it next!!
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. wash your zucchini thoroughly
  2. secure in your spiral slicer and turn handle to create 'spaghettish noodles'
  3. using olive oil, sautee your zucchini on low heat on the stove-top (note - this doesn't take long! keep an eye on it, because no one likes mushy 'noodles'.)
  4. when you feel like the zucchini is almost cooked to your liking, add in a few spoonfuls of pesto sauce
  5. mix it in thoroughly and continue to heat for a couple more minutes
  6. plate and sprinkle with some sea salt and ground pepper
  7. enjoy!
