Hey Foodie!

It’s Friday and nothing’s better then starting off the weekend with a delicious recipe for your weekend gatherings.

Zucchini pasta is so much more than a fun activity to do all together; it’s a full plate of veggies! If you’re sceptical about vegan dishes, you might be surprised how delicious this is.

Paleo Kale Pesto Recipe

This recipe is a pesto sauce for the perfect paleo zucchini pasta. The deep green color and fragrant smell of fresh herbs makes a mouth watering dish for your weekend guests. The smell reminds me of my Nonna’s house, where I would walk in to an extra large plate ready for me on the table.

There’s a little twist to this pesto you might not be used to… sprouted cashews. The creamy cashews give this sauce an Alfredo-like texture that mixes in perfectly with your zucchini noodles. Sunday pasta doesn’t seem like such a stretch after all does it?

Call Nonna over and put your dish up for the real test! Enjoy.
