I almost forgot that my spiralizer existed. While cleaning my pantry I spotted it sitting lonely up on the top shelf. I promised myself to use it the next week. If you meal plan or prep ahead of time, this dish can come together in five minutes. Otherwise it might take a good twenty minutes or so; Choose wisely. With no cooking at all, this dish is good way to feel like you are having a big bowl of pasta without the guilt.
Ingredients (for 2-3 people)
3 zucchini, spiralized
1 to 1 1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 ball of burrata
2 cups of fresh basil
1-2 cloves of garlic (or more, don’t let me stop you)
1/3 cup of toasted nuts (you can use pine nuts, pistachios, almonds or walnuts. Do YOU)
1/2 cup fresh parmesan cheese (grated)
1/2 cup of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Chopped pistachios to garnish
Put your spiralized zucchini in a big bowl.
Throw all the pesto ingredients into a food processor and blend until it’s to your liking.
Spoon as much pesto onto your zoodles for your taste and toss. Your hands are the best tool for this job.
Toss in your tomatoes.
Get your ball of burrata (SO delicious) tear it up and gently drop it all over.
Drizzle with your favorite olive oil and throw on some chopped pistachios. Taste for seasoning and then and serve. Voila.
