Pesto Oats

Oats, both savory and sweet, are such a great breakfast because they cook very fast and are so versatile. If you love pesto pasta then dish is for you. Pesto oats combine Italian flavors through mixing pesto with oats and topping it off with parmesan cheese. This dish is warm and comforting, perfect for a winter morning. Additionally, this meal is veggie packed! This recipe makes 1 serving.

  • green and yellow zucchini
  • 2 tbsp diced onion
  • a handful of spinach
  • minced garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese
