Zucchini Fettuccine with Pesto, Veggies and Chicken

This dish doesn't require a spiralizer as its easiest to make nice, wide zucchini noodles using an ordinary vegetable peeler. But if you want to use a spiralizer, and make linguine or spaghetti, that's fine too. No matter what shape you make your zoodles, this dish tastes delicious. Even carb addicts will love it. Packed with protein, fibre and good fats, no one will leave the table without feeling satisfied.

Recipe notes

Saute peppers, garlic and chicken in a large skillet, pouring in vinegar after 2-3 minutes. Once chicken is cooked through, add in remaining veggies and seasonings. Toss zucchini noodles with everything in the skillet and cook for a few minutes until zoodles are softened. Add in konjac powder 1 tsp at a time, until any excess liquid is absorbed. Serve immediately.
