* You can use a veggie peeler to get thin slices, but using the Saladacco Spiral slicer makes the zucchini look just like spaghetti noodles and I really enjoy eating the raw pasta so much more in long spirals. The Slicer is not very expensive, and for me it was well worth the money. If you are new to raw and wondering what things are actually necessary. This isn't one of them, but it is one of my purchases that I get a lot of use out of and joy from.
For the Sauce;
1/2 cup of water 3 Roma Tomatoes 1 cup of sun dried tomatoes packed in Oil 2 small red bell peppers 2 Tbsp of Extra virgin olive oil 1 oz of Lemon juice 1 medjool date 1 Tbsp fresh basil 1 tbsp cilantro 1 tsp dried oregano 1 Tbsp crushed garlic 1/2 Tsp of Celtic sea salt Garlic pepper Onion Powder to taste
* Blend it all together in a high speed blender. I find if you let it set for a bit the taste is that much better.
Place the ribbons or spirals of zucchini on a plate. I splash some lime on the noodles and some garlic powder to get a buttery effect. Then I add the sauce on the top. Wait until just before you are going to eat it to add the sauce onto the noodles because the salt makes the water come out of the zucchini.
You won't miss the old white flour pasta at all after you try this fresh live version!
