    Select one medium zucchini per person; then make long strands of zucchini pasta using a potato peeler or one of those kitchen gadgets that transform zucchini or root vegetables such as parsnip, carrot, beet, or celeriac into pasta shapes with the simple turn of a handle. The flavour-packed pesto recipe can be made several hours to a day in advance, ready to mix in with the zucchini pasta immediately after it is made.

    Pasta

    4 to 6 medium zucchini

    Pesto

    6 Tbsp (90 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) pine nuts
    3 cloves garlic
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) fresh parsley, chopped
    10 to 12 fresh basil leaves
    Pinch of sea salt

    To prepare pesto sauce, blend all ingredients until completely smooth. Add 1 to 2 tsp (5 to 10 mL) warm water if the sauce is too thick. Cut zucchini into long strands and immediately toss the pesto with the zucchini pasta.

    Serves 4-6
