Zucchini Fennel Pasta with Pesto and Pumpkin Seeds

Print

Zucchini pasta was the perfect choice for this week– it’s beautiful, nourishing and takes a mere 7 minutes to create. You’ll need a spiralizer to create the pasta – a fantastic tool for the salad lover or recovering pasta-addict. It is best to make the pasta immediately before serving. Bon appétit!

Further Food Commentary:

This raw zucchini pasta is loaded with potassium which is great for hydration and fluid balance in the body! One serving contains 82% of your daily needs for Vitamin C, making this dish great for building immunity and fighting free radicals that can cause damage within the body. Lastly, the pumpkin seeds not only add some texture and a delicious crunch but they are rich in the two essential fatty acids, omega 3 and omega 6!
