Zoodles & Avocado Pesto Alfredo

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • ½ cup fresh parsley packed
  • 1 tsp. salt (+more to taste)
  • 1 cup fresh basil packed
  • ¼ cup + 1 Tbsp. avocado oil

Instructions

  • Julienne the zucchini into "noodles" using a julienne peeler, mandoline or spiralizer. Lightly salt and set aside.
  • Halve avocado and remove the pit. Scoop out the inside and place in a food processor or blender.
  • Add garlic, lemon, parsley, salt, basil, and 1/4 c. avocado oil. Blend until smooth.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp. avocado oil in a pan.
  • Add zucchini and sauce. Sautée 5 min. or until zucchini is just beginning to soften and sauce is warm.
  • Serve with your protein of choice—chicken breast and shrimp are my favorites.
