fresh basil pesto zoodle bowl


I'm loving fresh basil and zucchini this summer. I couldn't wait to share this recipe with you guys because I know you will fall in love too! It's just one of those dishes you can feel really good about! Also pairs well with a nice sauvignon blanc (super important). 

this recipe feeds about three people and takes a bit of veggie prep but all veggies can be prepared in advance

Sauté all veggies separately in a wok with fresh basil, oil, salt & pepper, and garlic (with the exception of tomatoes). Drain veggies that create water and set aside.
