You guys? This Cheesy Pesto Zoodles recipe is going to Make. Your. Week. I’m not even kidding. So creamy and cheesy that even your picky family members will be on board with this vegetarian friendly keto zucchini recipe!
Hearty enough to enjoy on its own as a main dish, this cheesy pesto zoodles recipe also makes a fantastic side dish to break up your weeknight monotony of protein + cheesy cauliflower puree. (Just kidding, I still love you Cheesy Cauliflower Puree!)
Seriously though, you can add some cooked chicken or sausage to these cheesy keto zucchini noodles and it will be even more fantastic!
That being said, I’m working on more meatless keto recipes for the blog, which will no doubt be an exciting development to those of you trying to follow a vegetarian keto diet, but for the rest of you don’t panic – I’m not going full veggie on you anytime soon.
Just going to sprinkle some more vegetarian friendly keto recipes into my regular feed here. But if you haven’t tried it yet, this Cheesy Pesto Zoodles recipe is the perfect place to start!
Another thing to love about this cheesy pesto zoodles recipe is that it can be made in just minutes. And I’m not trying to get you on a technicality here–like how people will say minutes but it’s 59 minutes, so really an hour. It literally takes minutes (less than 20 of them) to have this zucchini noodle recipe on the table from start to finish!
So when you get home from work and you’re starving–but also Netflix, jammies, and your couch are calling? Tell them you’ll be right there and make these cheesy pesto zoodles STAT.
- You will need a veggie spiralizer to make the zucchini noodles for this recipe, and you can get them for around $30 on Amazon. For convenience sake, you can purchase pre-spiralized zucchini noodles in the produce department of some grocery stores.
- You can use home-made or store-bought basil pesto for this cheesy pesto zoodle recipe, but it also tastes amazing with my garlic scape pesto.
