Zucchini Pesto noodles

 For the week 2 of BM#66 , the theme is vegetables
which are fruits. According to botanists, a fruit is that part of the plant
which develops from a flower. According to Wikipedia a fruit is the seed
bearing structure of flowering parts called as angiosperms. One such fruit
which in culinary use is known as a vegetable is zucchini. Here is a simple
pesto pasta with zucchini noodles and not the regular noodles made with the all
purpose flour. As this noodle is done with a vegetable, it is very healthy and
tasty too. We get a spiralator called vegatti now. I bought it online and it is
quite useful. You can noodles from zucchini, cucumber and carrot. Its small,
handy and not expensive too. It is very easy to use too. You have to insert the
vegetable on one side, and turn the vegatti like you turn the pencil when
inserted in a sharpener and you get long noodles of the vegetable and the centre
seed part comes out through the other side.
