Try It Tuesday with Zucchini...

Who doesn't love a good pasta dish...especially a healthy one? I've been eating zucchini noodles now for awhile but have kept it pretty simple with a marinara sauce. I love the crunch when I bite into these, they just scream freshness, plus they are just too much fun to make. BTW the easiest way to make the noodles is with a spiralizer and there a few options to choose from here. So while I was browsing on one of my favorite athletic apparel sites this raw, vegan & gluten-free zucchini recipe caught my eye. It was so easy to make, although I did prep the "parmesan" & pesto sauce ahead to save time. Click here for the recipe and below are a few pictures of this zucchetto pesto in the making. 
The recipes doesn't tell you this step but after spiralizing my zucchini I salt it and put it on paper towels while it sweats for about 30 minutes. If you skip this step your dish will be very watery. Notice the water from the above picture.
