Pesto Zucchini Spagetti

Pesto Zucchini Spagetti

This is one of the primary reasons I have bought the vegetable spiralizer. To make vegetable spaghetti for my favorite pasta sauces. These spaghetti are very easy to make and require minimal or no cooking (if you like eating zucchini raw). I have always cooked zucchini but I know many people who like them raw. You can spiral slice zucchini at one go and then freeze a batch for next time. In this way you always have a healthy dinner handy.
