One of my new kitchen gadgets is a spiralizer. It’s a simple tool that has given me a lot of new recipe possibilities. I’ve used for countless dishes but my favorite is using it to make fresh zucchini noodles. The recipe I’m sharing today is actually Sam’s favorite. He rarely enjoys “healthy” meals but when he first tried this dish he had a genuine look of surprise at how much he liked it. He went back for second and thirds. I now make this for him at least once a week. As always it’s super easy and healthy.
Sun dried tomatoes
Start by preheating the oven to 350°F. Make the zucchini noodles with your spiralizer. Let the noodles sit and drain for at least 15 minutes. Once the oven is hot, toast the pine nuts for a few minutes or until they start to turn golden brown. Make sure not to burn them. Drain the sun dried tomatoes and chop them into small pieces. Combine the noodles, pine nuts, and tomatoes. Dress with pesto and garnish with fresh basil. Serve and enjoy.
