Ingredients
  • 2 cups de-stemmed basil
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 medium zucchini
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
Instructions
  1. Combine the basil, nuts, and garlic in a food processor and process until it forms a course paste. Slowly add the olive oil in a steady drizzle and continue to process until it becomes a smooth texture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. This makes roughly 1 cup of pesto so you will have some extra leftover.
  3. Make the zucchini pasta with a spiralizer or process into julienne strips using your food processor. Mix with about a half cup of the pesto - you can add more or less to suit your tastes. Top with the cherry tomatoes and finish off with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
