Ingredients

  • 2
    Zucchini
  • 2 Cups
    Fresh Basil
  • 1/4 Cup
    Pine Nuts
  • 1/4 Cup
    Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/3 Cup
    Sciabica's Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons
    Sciabica's Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons
    Lemon Juice
  • 1/3 Teaspoon
    Sea Salt
  • 1/3 Teaspoon
    Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, add Sciabica's Garlic EVOO, Pine Nuts, and Pepper. Process until smoth.

  2. Add nutritional yeast, salt, basil and lemon juice. Process to combine.

  3. Set the pesto aside until you're ready to combine with zucchini noodles.

  4. Cut the ends off of your zucchini and spiralize. I recommend tearing the noodles into smaller pieces as you go, otherwise you'll end up with a "Lady and the Tramp" situation on your hands when you try to eat your pasta!

  5. Saute zoodles in a non-stick pan with Sciabica's Lemon EVOO until browned.

  6. In a bowl, combine with pesto and zoodels, or plate zoodles and garnish with pesto.
