Zoodles with Artichoke Lemon Pesto

Zoodles with Artichoke Lemon Pesto

Zucchini noodles quick fried with chicken and sun dried tomatoes in an easy-to-make, flavorful artichoke lemon pesto.

Have you tried zoodles yet? Zoodles are zucchini noodles made with a Spiral Vegetable Slicer. The noodles make a great substitute for pasta when you’re trying to eat less carbs.

Recently I was at Sprouts buying zucchini to make noodles. I’d planned on serving the zoodles with a traditional basil pesto, but decided to try an Artichoke Lemon Pesto they were selling.

My husband and I loved it. It was so bright and fresh and flavorful that my husband said I should post the recipe. I didn’t want to post the recipe using the store bought Artichoke Lemon Pesto, so I bought the ingredients and recreated it at home.

Ingredients

  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of Artichoke Lemon Pesto
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
  • 2 medium zucchini cut into noodles
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6.5-ounce jar of marinated artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • pinch of salt and pepper
