Roasted Red Peppers with Pesto Zucchini Noodles and Goat Cheese

A healthy meal involving goat cheese and pesto? Yes please. Too good not to share!

To preface this recipe, I am obsessed with my spiralizer. I have the Paderno 3-blade, and use it to incorporate more veggies into our meals pretty much as often as Hunter will allow (there was a month last year that consisted of a TON of spiralized zucchini spaghetti and meatball dinners, so I don’t blame him for limiting my zoodle usage.) But hey, the spiralizer has many benefits. It’s simple to use, easy to clean and disguises veggies as carbs (for the most part.) This week has been cray at the office so I was looking for something easy, flavorful and healthy – after all it is still January, people. Let’s not throw our health and wellbeing out the window that quickly.

This recipe was created by Inspiralized – my go-to blog for all spiralizer recipes! Ali is so creative with vegetables it’s seriously inspiring (get it?) You can find the original recipe here! Also, I haven’t mentioned how gorgeous this dish is. Check it out:
