Recipe Directions

For the Pesto:

Soak the pinenuts and pumpkin seeds for at least 4 hours. Drain and rinse.

Place all ingredients apart from the water into a food processor and process until almost smooth. You still want a little texture to it. Add a little water at a time if it seems too dry.

Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to a week.

For the Zucchini Linguini:

Use a julienne peeler to slice the zucchini lengthways into long noodles and place in a large bowl. You could also use a spiralizer.

Chop the tomatoes and capsicum, destone and chop the olives and add these with the pine nuts to the zucchini.

Add the pesto and mix thoroughly to combine.

Leave to sit for 1hour before serving if you would like the noodles to soften a bit.

Kellymyra's Thoughts

By kellymyra

I made this dish for a raw potluck this weekend. All the classic italian flavours are there which makes this a favourite for friends and family who are not raw. You can make a big batch of pesto up to keep for the week and just do the zucchini on the night.

this tasted so great!! i brought it to christmas eve with my family and it was a huge hit. nobody really had a clue what they were eating, but they loved it. i think it tastes best when it's assembled right before it is served. i put all the zucchini and veggies together and then made the sauce to combine at the party. i'd also put the zucchini in paper towels over a strainer to get the water out because 3 zucchinis makes a ton of water. i'm serving the rest of it today for christmas to see how the other side of the family likes it : )

This is wonderful. I have made it a couple times and prefer to substitue half the basil for spinach for a more mellow flavor.

This is probably too late, but I think it made about a cup to a cup and a half.

This came out wonderful! I only had 1 c of basil so I added in 3 leafs of chard. Flavor was still there, so forgiving. I will be enjoying this much this week. Thank you!
