Zucchini with Chop Chop Pesto

Zucchini with Chop Chop Pesto

This is steamed Zucchini with all the elements of pesto sprinkled on top in a rough chop. It was really good.

Printable Version

1 Zucchini 6 – 8 inches long
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for drizzling
¼ cup toasted pine nuts (I used walnuts because I was out of pine nuts)
3-5 Basil leaves, rough chopped
1 T Parmesan cheese

Slice the Zucchini in half lengthwise. Steam in skillet with lid on for 7-9 minutes until tender. When Zucchini is done place on serving dish. Sprinkle halves with salt and pepper, drizzle with oil, sprinkle with nuts, basil, and cheese. Serve.
