I wasn’t sure what to do with all the zucchini I got at the farmer’s market, but this Raw Zucchini Pesto Pasta was the perfect solution. This week I was gifted a spiralizer, and decided to put it to good use. I made this light and flavorful zucchini pasta, that makes for the perfect salad or appetizer. It took less than 10 minutes to prepare, and can be customized however your heart desires.  You can even use our Light Pesto recipe to toss in this recipe!

Start off by spiralizing your zucchini into a bowl.  Massage the pesto into the zucchini pasta with your hands to evenly coat the noodles.  Add onions, tomatoes, and feta cheese to the mixture.  Finally, add a pinch of salt and pepper and enjoy this delicious entree.
