It looks like avocado, but that’s actually zucchini covered in Lemon Pesto sauce

Two things surprised me about this dish.

The first was the flavor — it’s intense! Between the Lemon Pesto sauce, the zucchini and bell pepper, the raw cheese, and the Parma Chipotle Cayenne sprinkles, your taste buds will kick into overdrive.

The second surprise was how filling it was. I couldn’t believe how full this meal made me.
