Zucchini Noodles with Kale Pesto


This kale pesto sauce was SUPER good and I couldn't even tell that it was healthy. Definitely as good as Trader Joe's bottled pesto sauce that I cove. The 4 zucchini made a ton, and I mean a ton, of noodles so if it is just you and another person then 2 zucchini is more than enough.

Overall, this was super good recipe and I would recommend it! It took me about 20 minutes from start to finish with my spiralizer so that is a quick easy dinner or side dish. I would recommend using a food processor and not a Nutribullet like I tried to do. I made a huge, bright green mess in the kitchen. Whoops.
