Easy Pesto Zoodles & Red Pepper

easy pesto zoodles

1 - medium zucchini
1 tbsp - pesto
1/2 - chopped red pepper
1 tbsp - coconut oil
Salt & pepper to taste

First step, wash your zucchini and red pepper. ( Here's how you can do it with apple cider vinegar )

Next, grab your spiralizer ( or a peeler will work just fine ) and grate your zucchini. You will be surprised at the volume of noodles from just one zucchini. And also, chop up the red pepper into smaller pieces.

Warm your pan and add the coconut oil. Medium heat worked just fine.

Add in the tbsp of pesto. Toss the noodles.

Cook the zoodles / peppers until they are slightly softened.

Plate it up. Enjoy !
