Are you getting sick with the zucchini “zoodles” yet? I don’t know what you think. However, I’ve noticed that zucchini noodles are too spongy for me! I am a sucker for low-carb foods; however, lately, I’ve been searching for a more convenient, less time-consuming digest, and less soggy substitute.
Introduce the heart of palm pasta! Hearts of Palm are low-carb and low in calories; they are also full of fiber and are a fantastic food source for vitamins K and A.
This superfood pasta is very tasty and comes with the benefit of being cooked in advance, giving you ample time to prepare your five-minute pesto in just five minutes.
The pesto pasta is bursting with bright flavors. The tomatoes that have been roasted add an explosion of summer flavors, and the pesto paired with parmesan cheese makes it creamy and delicious.
To make this recipe, you’ll require a food processor or blender to make the pesto and a skillet for cooking the tomato.
What are Hearts Of Palm?
Hearts of palm is a vegetable that originates from the inside of the bud that grows on palm trees and is the reason for the name! It is a citrusy taste and closely resembles the flavor as well as the texture of artichoke hearts as well as water chestnuts.
Each packet of pasta can be used to feed 2 to 3 people, so be aware of that. You may also simmer the pasta for a short time to get an easier texture.
The good thing about these noodles is they come with a texture that is al dente. So all you have to do is throw them in the final minute of cooking to warm them up, and you’ll be ready to go!
Is This Recipe Keto?
Due to the low carbohydrate content, it is regarded as a keto pasta recipe. It’s as if it can’t get better!
How Long Does Pesto Keep?
Your pesto will be kept in a tightly-sealed container for up to one week. A coating of olive oil over the top of it will prevent the pesto from turning brown.
Is it possible to freeze Pesto?
Yes, absolutely! My preferred method of storing best because it can be kept for up to 3 to 6 months when stored in the freezer.
I store the pesto in an Ice cube tray (here are some of my favorite tray designs to store pesto), creating small pesto cubes. They are great to use when you just need small amounts each time. This is an excellent option to use the basil you’ve grown during the summer!
Can I Use the store Bought Pesto?
If you don’t own a food processor or do not have the time or the motivation to make pesto from scratch, you could certainly use a jar of pesto you can buy from the grocery supermarket. It’s not a problem!
How Do I Respond If I don’t Have or As Almonds?
I used almonds as it was the only thing I had. However, you are free to mix it with any nut or seed you’ve got! The pumpkin seeds or pine nuts are great in this pesto, too.
How Do I Respond If I don’t have Cherry Tomatoes?
While cherry tomatoes are the most flavor to this dish, I believe Roma tomatoes chopped into cubes can also be used.
How to Construct Hearts Of Palm Pasta
Assemble your ingredients.
In the blender or food processor in a blender, mix the basil and the spinach. Add parmesan cheese, almonds, garlic cloves, and salt. The ingredients should be pulsing a few times.
If your blender or food processor is on a low level or at a slow speed, slowly pour in olive oil until the pesto has a smooth consistency. You might need to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times.
Incorporate olive oil in an oven-proof pan, and put it over medium-high heat. Add your cherry tomatoes , and cook until they begin to pop, around 5 minutes.
Turn off the flame. Add the noodles and 1/4 cup of freshly prepared pesto. Remove the heat, then add the noodles and 1/4 cup of freshly prepared pesto.
Transfer to a bowl and garnish with cooked chicken breasts and more cheese If you like.
