One Pot Zesty Pesto Zoodles

One Pot Zesty Pesto Zoodles

I wanted a super quick but healthy dish for Lunch today – you know when you forget you have to prepare a meal before you can eat it, I kinda did that today and ended up very hungry!! So this one pot wonder was born. Super easy, super quick & super healthy! Also perfect if you participate in the meatless Monday campaign/challenge or you’re a veggie of course! It tastes super fresh & light but is also very filling – a perfect meal and as a bonus – there is hardly any washing up! Woohoo!
