Zucchini “Pasta” with Pesto

Preparation time: 10 minutes Total time: 25 minutes Makes: 4 servings

  • 3 zucchini
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes (halved, about 240-350 mL (1-1/2 cups))
  • 160 mL 2/3 cup basil pesto
  • 1 mL 1/4 tsp salt


Use a spiralizer or grate zucchini lengthwise using the large holes of a box grater, into spaghetti-like noodles. It should measure about 2 L (8 cups).

Place zucchini in a salad spinner or a colander to drain excess liquid, about 15 minutes. Press down gently to remove more liquid.

Transfer to a bowl and toss with tomatoes, pesto and salt until coated. Season with fresh pepper.
