ZOODLES ARE THE NEW NOODLES
Deliciously creamy, fresh basil pesto with zoodles (zucchini noodles), raw pine nuts and cherry tomatoes.
Simple, healthy, refreshing yet filling, easy to make and absolutely delicious.
I love making zoodles to have with lunch or dinner, and they’re perfect with my dairy-free basil pesto recipe! I usually sprinkle some raw pine nuts and chopped cherry tomatoes on top.
This recipe is dairy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free and grain-free.
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! xo
