zucchini pasta with peas and a kale pesto

zucchini pasta with peas and a kale pesto
  • Kale Pesto:
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt, divided, or more to taste
  • 1 bunch kale, stemmed
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Zucchini Pasta:
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 large zucchini, cut into noodle-shape strands
  • 7 ounces frozen petite peas


  1. Bring a large pot of water and 2 tablespoons salt to a boil. Add kale and cook uncovered until bright green, about 3 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Place kale, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, and chopped garlic in a food processor. Pulse about 5 times; slowly drizzle in 1/4 cup olive oil. Season with salt.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the minced garlic and red pepper flakes until the garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the zucchini and toss until just tender, about 2 minutes.
  4. Remove the saucepan from heat and add peas and the kale pesto; toss to combine.
