Zucchini linguine with pesto

Zucchini linguine with pesto


  • 4 zucchini
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup basil pesto
  • parmesan cheese


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.
