Kale and Pesto Pasta

Author Notes:

I’m not throwing in the towel on real noodles, but these spiralized zucchini noodles were totally delicious and such a great way to eat a carb-free meal that feels totally indulgent, but isn’t. Oh and that kale pesto? To die for. Like I could have, and may have, eaten it with a spoon!
