Zoodles with Zucchini Pesto and Sauteed Ground Pork

Zoodles with Zucchini Pesto and Sauteed Ground Pork

Such a balanced dish with lots of greens, healthy fats and protein. Replace the ground pork with tuna or for a vegan option go for tofu!

Zoodles are the new foodie trend. They are everywhere: Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook. All food bloggers have at some point made a recipes with them. On WeChat I see at least one post a week from someone having zucchini noodles. Reason is zoodles are SUCH an amazing way to serve up your zucchini, replace pasta noodles in your recipes and have your daily serving of raw veggies.

In today’s recipe I dress them with a few tablespoons of Alce Nero zucchini pesto and some sauteed ground pork.

If you don’t like meat, replace the pork with some fresh tuna (cooked in the same way), or if you are vegan/vegetarian go for some sauteed tofu seasoned with salt, pepper and some paprika!

Ingredients (serves 1):

Chop up the onion

and saute’ it in a skillet with the oil until soft

add the ground pork, season with salt and pepper and cook on medium for 3-5 min or until meat is half cooked. Pour in 1/4 cup of white or rose’ wine and let the liquid evaporate

Remove from the heat and set aside

Meanwhile spiralize the zucchini into noodles

and add them to the skillet with the ground pork, together with a few tbsp of the zucchini pesto. Stir until the zoodles are well coated. Add some ground black pepper

and plate them adding some fresh basil leaves

For a winter dish, you can warm this up or for the summer just serve it at room temperature
