Make zucchini pasta using a spiralizer
Cook the pasta al dente, according to the directions on the package.
In a food processor, combine garlic, avocado, lemon juice, pine nuts, basil, parmesan, jalapeño and olive oil. Blend until you have a smooth pesto sauce. Season with salt & pepper to your taste.
Heat a large cast iron grill over medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add the corn and grill for about 10 minutes, turning it each 2-3 minutes until lightly charred on all sides. Cut the corn from the cob and set aside.
Place pasta and zucchini noodles in a large bowl. Pour the avocado pesto sauce over then toss well to combine.
Top the pasta with the grilled corn, tomatoes, and pine nuts. You can grate extra parmesan on top of the zucchini pasta if you like it! Enjoy!
