We started getting some zucchini in the garden and I decided to make some “pasta”. We also have a lot of kale, basil, and spinach so I decided to whip up some pesto and add some kale. I just throw things together for pesto and taste as I go changing things up based on what I have to use up so I used spinach instead of parsley. Wonder if I could have added more green to it?
Raw Green Pesto Zucchini Pasta
Makes 4 servings
4 medium zucchini, shredded, long shreds (like pasta)
4-6c fresh kale, chopped
pesto sauce of choice (or recipe below)
sea salt and fresh ground pepper
shredded basil for garnish, optional
Place shredded zucchini in a strainer and press to remove moisture. I will also blot it with a paper towel if there seems to be extra moisture. You could also blanch your zucchini if you wish, I didn’t. In a bowl mix together zucchini with pesto enough to coat, if you like yours with more pesto add more. Spread desired amount of kale onto plates, top with pesto zucchini, season with salt and pepper, and garnish with optional basil. Enjoy!
Makes 4-8 servings
