Walnut Pesto

Walnut Pesto

I love a good Pesto!  This one is wonderful pesto packed with flavor and nutrients.

Place one cup fresh basil packed full, 1/4 cut walnut oil, 1 tablespoon grated parmesan, 1 clove garlic, 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, and 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice in a high power blender or food processor.  Blend until desired consistency.


To cook your zucchini noodles.  Use a spiralizer to cut zucchini into noodles, you can find them at most stores for about $10.  Blanch them in a pot of boiling water for about a minute or two.  You want to cook them just until they are hot, since by nature they are already very soft.  Drain and enjoy!
