Zucchini Noodles with Basil Almond Pesto

Almonds, zucchini, pesto…what else do you need in the world? Instead of using regular pasta noodles, a vegetable spiralizer can turn your zucchini into noodles. Using a vegetable spiralizer is a great way to make carb-filled, unhealthy dishes a lot healthier. Try experimenting with other veggies to make them into noodles, but enjoy this tasty vegan pasta for now.
