Creamy Vegan Zucchini Pesto Pasta

You may call it zucchini, or you may call is courgette but regardless it’s delicious! It’s creamier than classic pesto thanks to the jammy courgette, and there’s no need to stream in olive oil as you would in classic pesto, since the courgette gets cooked in a generous amount of oil. And instead of raw garlic, the pesto gets extra flavour from the caramelized courgette.

Ingredients:

  • Wellside Foods macaroni
  • courgette / zucchini or summer squash 
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt 
  • garlic 
  • red pepper flakes
  • pine nuts or pistachios
  • large lemon
