This is a completely raw and outrageously delicious dish. You can prepare this in no time at all if you have the right tool i.e. a spiralizer, mandolin, grater or a Veggetti, which is what we used. We actually found it for sale for less than $10 at our local pharmacy. This is such a fun way to eat raw veggies. This dish has bold, full flavors from the fresh basil, garlic, tomatoes and zucchini. Plus you also get all the pure nutrients from eating them raw. We hope you and your family enjoy this refreshingly healthy Raw Zucchini Pasta Marinara as much as we do.

3 small zucchinis
4 Roma tomatoes, cored and the stem/seeds removed
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
1/2 a red pepper
1 garlic clove
5 basil leaves, and extra for garnish
2 Tbsp. olive oil, cold-pressed
grape tomatoes, as garnish
salt & pepper, to taste
Method of Prep:
In a high speed blender (we used our Vitamix 5200) blend together the Roma tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, red pepper, garlic, 5 basil leaves, and olive oil. Blend until smooth.
Spiralize the zucchinis. We used a hand held spiralizer called the Veggetti which creates gorgeous, soft “pasta” out of the zucchini. If you don’t own one, you could always use a grater, mandolin or another tool to cut the zucchini into thin strips, but we do recommend a spiralizer as we think you’ll use it again and again.
Top the spiral zucchini “pasta” with the sauce. Garnish with fresh basil and grape tomatoes, cut in half. Salt & pepper to taste.
Serve cold or room temperature, Enjoy!
