Avocado Pesto Zoodles

AuthorKathleen GloverCategory, , DifficultyBeginner

Avocado pesto zoodles are great for cutting down carbs and incorporating more vegetables in your diet. By subbing in zucchini for noodles (thus the name zoodles) you can feel good about what you're indulging in since this recipe is a whopping FOUR servings of vegetables. Each cup of Zoodles is only 19 calories, compared to the 200 calories of normal spaghetti. You can serve it as a main meal or use it as a side dish along with the main meal.

Depending on what your preference is, you can fry zucchini a little bit, in olive oil and butter, or you can also use it fresh if you want a more "al dente" effect.
