Super Green Vegan, Gluten-Free Cilantro Pesto Zaghetti

If you're looking for a super quick and bright dinner or lunch recipe that's packed with nutrients and greens, look no further! This cilantro and spinach based pesto is exploding with flavor and color, you can use this pesto for zucchini noodles like I did, regular noodles, as fresh bread or cracker dip, or to make a springy pesto cauliflower crust pizza! If you are the type that does not like cilantro, you can sub cilantro for basil for a more traditional pesto. Enjoy!
