I make the zucchini pasta with Veggetti*...the simple to use and inexpensive way to turn veggies into delicious healthy pasta. *this can be purchased at Bed, Bath and Beyond


  • Zucchini Pasta
  • 10-15 Zucchini (peeled w/ zucchini shredder or Veggetti)
  • Chicken Breast (grilled or broiled) or use precooked chicken)
  • Baby Heirloom Tomatoes
  • Pesto
  • 1/2 Bag of Baby Spinach (3oz)
  • 1 Small Package of Basil
  • 1/4 Cup of Fresh Block Parmesan
  • 1 Clove of Garlic
  • Handful of Almonds
  • 1/3 Cup of Olive Oil (start here but add more to get a creamy pesto consistency)
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste


  1. Prepare your zucchini pasta with either your zucchini peeler or Veggetti. In a food processor or blender add all of your pesto ingredients and mix well to get a pesto consistency. Heat your chicken in a pan on each side according to package. In a separate saute pan toss your noodles (no oil needed water cooks out of zucchini) to heat up but keep them with a crunchy bite in texture. I don’t like them over cooked and soggy. Then toss your pesto in with the zucchini noodles and plate. Then layer on your chicken and heirloom tomatoes.


The pasta is made of zucchini mixed with a spinach & basil pesto topped with sliced chicken breast and heirloom tomatoes. "D" licious and good for you! If you like crumble some parmesan cheese on the top. Recipe compliments of SkinnyBitchesCanCook
