  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini until tender and liquid has evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir garbanzo beans and pesto into zucchini; lower heat to medium-low. Cook and stir until garbanzo beans are warm and zucchini is evenly coated, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer zucchini mixture to serving bowls and top with white Cheddar cheese.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Use any sort of spiralizing device to make the zucchini into noodle-shape. I used the Paderno® World Cuisine spiralizer.
