Zucchini Noodles with Pumpkin Seed Pesto
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, place on serving dish, top with chiffonade of sweet Italian basil. Serve at room temp for the most flavor.
Use soaked pumpkin seeds or pumpkin seed butter, with fresh basil, cloves of garlic, salt, 21 Salute, olive oil.
Put all in the blender or food processor and mix, adding oil as needed to create the right consistency. A thick paste but, not too thick.
The "pesto" can be made with any nut or seed you have on hand. Walnuts, pine nuts, cashews and sunflower seeds are all good choices.
