It's got everything I love most in the summer:

  • pesto
  • noodles
  • zoodles
  • fresh mozzarella
  • TOMATOES

Also? It takes 20 minutes, top to bottom, to make. So you can spend more time playing outside, and less time in the kitchen.

other Ingredients

  • 2 cups basil (or a mix of arugula & basil)
  • 1/3 c. walnuts/pistachios/pine nuts
  • 1/4 c. grated parmesan (optional) or 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 c. hummus
  • sea salt & pepper, to taste
  • water, as needed

how to make

  1. Bring a big pot of water to boil for your pasta. 
  2. While that's heating, add basil, walnuts, cheese/nooch, and garlic into your food processor. Pulse until everything is minced. Add hummus and a pinch of sea salt. Process until well combined. Thin with water until you get your desired consistency. Adjust sea salt/pepper to suit your tastes.
  3. Quarter tomatoes, spiralize zucchini, and shred mozz. 
  4. Cook noodles according to package instructions. Reserve 1/4 c. cooking liquid. 
  5. When noodles are still hot, add to a large bowl and toss with zoodles, pesto, tomatoes, and mozz. Add reserved cooking liquid, as needed, to mix everything around. You'll need to toss pretty vigorously with tongs to mix it all up. 

Serve and enjoy.
