Pesto is a wonderful alternative to white or red sauces and definitely doesn’t lack in flavor. You can make your own pesto or buy store-bought versions, which are usually low in carbs. If you’ve never liked ricotta, you may want to try seasoning it by sprinkling herbs or salt directly on the ricotta to bring out the most flavor. The creamy element it brings to the dish is a must! Serve atop zoodles with a sprinkle of parsley.
