  • 2 cups dried zucchini
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped

  • 1 cup walnuts, toasted
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Cooking Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta according to the package directions.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, add all the ingredients except the olive oil to a food processor.
  3. Blend until smooth and then slowly drizzle in the oil until combined.
  4. Reserve a cup of the pasta water before draining and set aside.
  5. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot.
  6. Add the pesto and stir, pouring in a little pasta water at a time to thin the pesto out. You might not need it all so do this in stages.
