RAW ZUCCHINI PASTA MARINARA

July 28, 2009 at 10:27 pm Leave a comment

This is something I have not tried yet, but it is on my to-do list as the next recipe!  Growing up, I loved eating pasta.  But pasta is so carb-heavy and makes me soo lethargic everytime I eat it.  If you haven’t tried the ground turkey zucchini skillet recipe on spaghetti squash, you must 🙂 This is a simple pasta recipe that is raw (unprocessed and uncooked) and healthy.

There are a lot of good variations of this recipe, I liked this video with Jennifer Cornbleet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLi5657CSos

Ingredients:

For marinara sauce:

1 medium diced tomato

1 diced red pepper

sundried tomatoes (I used about eight of these and tried draining off most of the oil)

dried basil

dried oregano

1 clove of garlic

For the pasta, all you need is peeled zuchini. You can either slice them in julienne strips or peel them as ribbons with a peeler.  If you have a spiruler or mandoline, you could use either of those too.  I will use a peeler and will save the core to slice as topping for my pasta.  Even though the recipe is raw, I would prefer to warm it up because cold pasta is kind of a turn off.  Aside from that, you can always add extra toppings such as grated parmaesan or vegetables
