Zucchini Noodles & Avocado Pesto

No ratings yet
As the weather finally gets warmer, we want to spend less time inside. I bought a Spiralizer to help cut down and cooking time, and my kids just love to use it to make noodles out of vegetables! These zucchini noodles are perfect for warm summer afternoons, and the avocado pesto can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to 3 days.
