Spaghetti al pesto! Who does not love the famous Italian dish?? So what do you do when you left behind grains and cheese? You can still enjoy this delicious new version! Here I used raw zucchini "noodles", because they taste great and I wanted to retain maximum nutritional value! You can steam or lightly saute' our zucchini if you like.

  • ⅘ sorrel leaves
  • a bunch of fresh basil
