Zucchini sausage pesto rolls

23 Aug

Day 11! Okay, we’ll I kind of cheated on the sugar detox yesterday but it was conscious decision and not a crazy craving. It was this magnificent piece of cheesecake which I only ate half, and I took the smallest little bites so it lasted like an hour. Yum. BUT, my stomach felt like shit and I got a sugar high right before I had to stand up and speak to about 40 people. I totally spazzed out and forgot what I was going to say and reverted to the scared of public speaking Kari from years ago. That sucked. I blame the cheesecake. But whatever, that’s after 11 days no sugar, no fruit.

Okay, on with today’s meal! I made this tonight for dinner and I either should have made a salad, side, or more. These should definitely be used for an appetizer. I saw this on paleOMG today and had to make it.

Ingredients:

  • Zucchini (about 2 or 3)
  • Italian sausages (I got the spicy chicken sausage from Whole Foods)
  • Fresh made pesto sauce

Cut the zucchini’s with a mandolin or about 1/4 inch thick. Spread on pan (or grill would be much better) and drizzle with olive oil and a little salt and pepper. I broiled them until they were tender and a little brown from broiling.

Put the sausages in a frying pan and cook them for about 10 minutes. Flip over when one side is brown and cook the other side.

Make your pesto sauce (basil, olive oil, garlic, a few walnuts)

Take your pesto and spread it on the zucchini strips. Take your sausage and cut it into 1 inch pieces and roll them up with the zucchini strips, pesto facing the sausage. You can put a toothpick in them or just set on the side that was last to be rolled. Enjoy!
