Air-Fried Pesto Zucchini Noodles - Light, flavorful, and bursting with fresh goodness, these Air-Fried Pesto Zucchini Noodles offer a delightful twist on traditional pasta dishes. Perfect for a quick and healthy meal, they're a breeze to make with your air fryer.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 2 tablespoons pesto sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish (optional)
  • Chopped fresh basil, for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

Prepare the Zucchini Noodles:

  • Using a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler, create zucchini noodles (zoodles) from the zucchinis. If the zoodles are long, you can use kitchen scissors to cut them into more manageable lengths.

Season and Coat:

  • In a bowl, toss the zucchini noodles with olive oil, salt, and pepper until they are evenly coated.

Add Pesto:

  • Add the pesto sauce to the bowl with the zucchini noodles. Gently toss to ensure that the zoodles are coated with the pesto.

Preheat the Air Fryer:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.

Air Fry the Zucchini Noodles:

  • Place the coated zucchini noodles in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Air-fry the zoodles for about 5-7 minutes, gently tossing or shaking the basket halfway through the cooking time. The zoodles should be tender but still slightly crisp.

Serve:

  • Transfer the air-fried pesto zucchini noodles to a serving dish. If desired, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh basil over the top.

Enjoy:

  • Indulge in the delightful Air-Fried Pesto Zucchini Noodles—a light and flavorful dish where the zoodles absorb the vibrant pesto, creating a satisfying and nutritious meal.

These pesto-coated zucchini noodles, air-fried to perfection, offer a delightful alternative to traditional pasta, providing a burst of fresh flavors that's both wholesome and satisfying.
