Courgette Noodles with Creamy Avocado Pesto

Image 1


• 1 large courgette or 2 small ones
• 125 g pine nuts
• ½ lemon
• about 10 basil leaves
• 45 g Parmesan cheese
• 120 ml olive oil
• 1 medium sized avocado
• 1 clove of garlic
• Salt to taste


Using the spiral slicer, spiral the courgette into pasta-like noodles and set aside. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a food processor to make your creamy pesto. Heat your noodles in a saucepan on low to medium heat with olive oil and a touch of salt. Add your pesto to the noodles and stir well for 5-8 minutes. Try not to over cook the noodles, as they will become mushy. Top with fresh basil and Parmesan. Enjoy!
