I added mushrooms, peas, broccoli and tomatoes. So creamy. So comforting.
Pretty good. Halved ingredients to make it for 2. Tricky to get courgettes/zucchini noodles dry - used a lot of kitchen roll!

Delicious!! Used avocado oil instead, so so good! I plan to add mushrooms next time!

double the sauce recipe or halve the zucchini. and i recommend adding some parmesan while it's still in the pot, it takes it to a whole new level!
Loved it and not difficult to make. Tastes amazing
Super easy and fast recipe but 6 large zucchini is WAY to much the amount of pesto made if you want it creamy

Really nice but a little sickly after a while! Loved the combination of the sauce, worked really well.

Tastes great but needed to add a half cup of water to smooth out the sauce

Just as expected, really delish. Super way to make, in less than 15 mins.

As a new vegan this recipe seemed easy and delicious! And it most certainly was!

Excellent! I added some nutritional yeast. I don't have a food processor, so I used my blender. A little thick, but I added some water. Texture is perfect, flavor is amazing
It was really good to work with this app, I cooked first Yummly dish which was Warm Potato Salad where it turned out pretty well my family really loved what I made 😄

This was delicous. I didn't add the pine nuts and I halved the basil. I think the full amount of basil would have been too much. This will definately one of my new pasta substitutes!

The combo of avocado and pesto is just not good. There's also way too much sauce, if you make it with more noodles it might be ok.

This was okay, maybe I just don't care for pesto-like dishes. I've actually never had pesto. The lemon juice, even 1 tbsp was too much for my tastes. I'll try a different recipe in the future.

Delicious! I found one avocado is plenty. One of my favorite meals to make and it's so quick and easy
