|I added some diced cooked chicken breast to round out the dish|
4 cooked chicken breasts, diced
2 zucchini, cut into zughetti using a spiral slicer (they will look like angel hair pasta!)
Walnut Arugula Pesto Ingredients:
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2c raw walnuts
1/2c fresh basil
1/4c extra virgin olive oil
1tbs lemon juice
freshly ground sea salt to taste
1. In a food processor, pulse garlic, walnuts, arugula, basil, oil, and lemon until a paste is formed. Season with salt to taste.
2. Toss your chopped chicken with 1/2 the pesto. Toss your "pasta" with the other half. Warm in the microwave for 30 seconds per dish. Serve warm.
TIP: To store pesto, place it in a small container and top with a layer of olive oil. This will seal it keeping it fresh for future use. It should stay fresh in the fridge for a few weeks.
