Raw Courgette and Carrot Noodles with Parsley Pesto

I made this for my husband’s lunch the other day. It was something I have been wanting to experience after one night dreaming about him not having lunch and me waking up early in the morning making him some fresh courgette noodles and a big piece of lobster on top. Well, it was a pretty dish but only in my dream.
No lobster here but it’s the easiest and healthiest lunch or dinner you can have if you have an Inspiralizer to make the noodles.  Using the spiralizer make it so quick and impressive looking. We eat with our eyes, I heard.  I would recommend serving it immediately.
Having an Inspiralizer in hand makes eating healthy and being creative mush easier. Get one here . 
This   5 -blade version is the one I have. But the small Julienne Peeler is quite practical and save the cleaning
