Last week, the husband dragged us tent camping in the Adirondack Mountains. The area is absolutely beautiful, I will 100% agree with that. Breaking from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and breaking away from electronics was very calming and relaxing.

While I won’t get into the reasons I do not enjoy tent camping at all (give me a camper and I’m good to go) I love to see the pure joy on my boys and husbands face. They loved every minute of it and I in turn, loved watching them. I’m not going to lie when I say I was very excited to get back and take a real shower, wash the bug spray and campfire smells away and cook on a cooktop that doesn’t burn the top layer of skin off.
Introducing: Grilled Chicken Pesto Zoodles!
As I have stated before, zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables and come summer time, we eat A LOT of it. It’s very easy to care for (if you can keep the squash bugs away) and grows like a weed. Luckily, there is so much you can do with it. So yes, here is yet another zucchini recipe.
Many of the ingredients in this recipe come straight from my garden. The basil for the pesto, the tomatoes and the zucchini, I picked from the garden that morning. Yeah for having dinner right at your finger tips!
I used my homemade Pesto for this recipe. The zucchini I used were a bit too big for my hand spiralizer so I used my mandolin and julienned the zucchini. Normally I would spiralize them. Tastes the same whichever method you choose.
