Zucchini “Pasta” with Pesto

Zucchini noodles are a delicious way to get an extra serving of veggies. This 'pasta' is perfect while zucchini is in season across Canada.

Ingredients

  • 3 zucchini
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved, about 240-350 mL (1-1/2 cups)
  • 160 mL (2/3 cup) basil pesto
  • 1 mL (1/4 tsp) salt

Instructions

  1. Use a spiralizer or grate zucchini lengthwise using the large holes of a box grater, into spaghetti-like noodles. It should measure about 2 L (8 cups).
  2. Place zucchini in a salad spinner or a colander to drain excess liquid, about 15 minutes. Press down gently to remove more liquid.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and toss with tomatoes, pesto and salt until coated. Season with fresh pepper.
