Thermomix Zucchini Pesto Pasta Recipe

Thermomix Zucchini Pesto Pasta Recipe

Here’s the perfect starter recipe to get you going on the zoodle train! A fantastic homemade pesto is a great way to get into vegetable noodles, as it’s so full of flavour and texture, making it a perfect accompaniment to the slightly crunchy and subtle-tasting zoodles.

This recipe is a staff favourite for so many reasons: it’s only got a handful of simple, staple ingredients, making it economical and accessible to make; it’s super fresh, healthy and low carb, so you don’t get that post-carb slump in the afternoon when you need to be on your A-game; and it tastes fantastic served cold, so it’s perfect for taking to work or on the road with you. It’s also a great option for last-minute dinners, as it can literally be made and on the table in less than ten minutes!

This dish is gluten-free and full of veggies, making it certifiably super healthy. To make it dairy-free and vegan to boot, just replace the Parmesan with some vegan cashew cheese or nutritional yeast flakes and omit the bocconcini.
