Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 15 mins
Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 large zucchinis
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

 

Arugula Pesto:

  • 2 cups arugula
  • ½ cup basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup toasted walnuts
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil, more as needed

 

Instructions

To make the pesto, place all the ingredients in a food processor except the oil. With the food processor running, slowly pour in the oil until a thick paste has formed.

Using a spiralizer or hand peeler, make zucchini noodles. If you are using a hand peeler, hold the zucchini vertically and make long strokes with the peeler to create a noodle shape.

Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium high heat. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 1-2 minutes to soften. Season with salt and pepper. Add the zucchini noodles and cook 2-3 minutes to slightly soften. Take the pan off the heat and stir in some of the arugula pesto, adding more to your desired likeness. Mix to combine the tomatoes and pesto with the noodles. This dish is great served with a touch of parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy!
