Tips & FAQ’s:

Can I make this Zucchini Chevre recipe ahead of time?

Yes! But, as the zoodles marinate in the pesto, they will weep (excrete water). I like it because it softens the zucchini noodles and makes a sauce.

But, if your prefer a drier zoodle dish, check out his post on how to dry zucchini noodles by baking them.

Or, you can always lightly salt the zoodles and let them drain in a colander for 20-60 minutes. This adds some time to the finished recipe (of course).

How long will the Zucchini Chevre keep in the fridge?

These are good for 2-3 days chilled.
