Zucchini linguine with pesto recipe
Avoiding gluten doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your favourite pasta dishes. Get creative by pairing strands of zucchini with a yummy pasta sauce, such as this delicious zucchini linguine with pesto.
- 4 zucchini
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp butter
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup basil pesto

Cut ends from zucchini and use a peeler to cut long strips. Place on a chopping board in stacks and slice into strands.
Place zucchini linguine in a colander and add salt, tossing to combine. Allow any liquid to drain away.
Heat butter and oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add zucchini and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously.
Remove from heat and add pesto, tossing to coat. Serve with parmesan.
- There are fancy tools available such as spiralisers that turn vegetables into strands. You could also use a mandoline if you have one. The method described here doesn’t require any specialty equipment.
- Don’t limit yourself to pesto. You could also serve the zucchini linguine with bolognaise or your favourite tomato-based pasta sauce.
