Artichoke Pesto Zoodles

Have you ever come across certain foods that just taste better in different shapes? In my experience, zucchini tastes a lot better in noodle form. Zucchini + Noodles = Zoodles. First and foremost, nothing will ever replace the satisfying taste of real spaghetti. But for those of us trying to eat healthier, a great alternative option, especially when you’re craving that noodle shape, is zoodles!

This recipe is perfect for those that are craving those noodles but want to keep their carb consumption in check. Zoodles are the perfect option for you! This Artichoke Pesto is perfect for Artichoke lovers. You can even see real pieces of artichoke in the sauce! I love the simple ingredients that you can actually pronounce and know what they are: Artichoke, sunflower oil, salt, garlic, vinegar, spices, citric acid, and ascorbic acid. It’s the perfect pesto for people who are gluten free and vegan!
