Method

  1. Cut the zucchini into long thin ribbons (a mandolin is ideal), then use a sharp knife to cut each ribbon into thin strips. Add spaghettini into boiling water & cook as per packet instructions.

  2. Heat a large frying pan; spray with oil & cook onion, and garlic for 2-3 minutes or until golden. Add NESTLE CARNATION Lite Cooking Cream and stir through pesto & lemon zest.

  3. Toss zucchini and spaghettini with pesto sauce, rocket, and pistachios. Adjust seasoning, then pile onto plates and sprinkle with parmesan. Garnish with a few basil leaves and serve.
