Cooking Recipe

Servings: 6

Ingredients:
Pesto:
2 cups basil leaves (stems removed), tightly packed
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup raw pine nuts
6 zucchini, peeled
1 tomato, seeded and diced
1/2 cup Pine Nut Parmesan (store bought, optional)

Directions:
1. Start off by adding 2 cloves of garlic into the processor and grinding it down then add in ½ cup pine nuts and process more. Add in the sea salt and olive oil and process more. Use the spatula to get all of the ingredients down to the blade.

2. Now add in a handful of basil at a time and process into the ingredients. Use the spatula to get the ingredients down and add the rest of the basil. Once it is all processed you have your pesto!

3. Let€s make pasta! Peel your zucchinis into your pasta shape. Line them up and cut them in half and you have your penny pasta. To make another type of pasta you can use a spiral vegetable slicer to make fettuccini pasta.

4. Pour your pasta in a large bowl and place the pesto on top and toss it well. Top it off with seeded and diced tomatoes.

Serve and enjoy!
