UterToosott's picture
Raw food author and chef Jennifer Cornbleet shows you to make delicious gluten-free raw pasta out of zucchini, which is topped with raw marinara sauce. Readily available and extremely affordable, zucchini can be transformed into tender vegetable 'pasta' with nothing more than a few simple knife skills. In this video, Jennifer Cornbleet demonstrates how to create pasta ribbons that are as supple and delicious as wheat pasta, but with none of the processed flour or gluten.
  Zucchini 2 Medium, grated (noodles (FOR PASTA))
  Ripe tomato 1 Medium, chopped finely (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)
  Sundried tomatoes 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)
  Red bell pepper 1⁄2 Medium, chopped finely (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)
  Extra virgin olive oil 2 Tablespoon (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), crushed (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)
  Fresh basil leaves 1 Tablespoon, chopped finely (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)
  Dried oregano 1 Teaspoon (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)
  Black pepper 1 Dash (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)
  Cayenne pepper 1 Dash (FOR MARINARA SAUCE)

1. Peel the zucchini. Cut the zucchini into thin noodles using a vegetable spiral slicer.
2. Alternatively, use a vegetable peeler to create long ribbons, or “fettuccine,” by drawing the peeler down all sides of the zucchini until you reach the core.
3. FOR MARINARA SAUCE: Chop all the vegetables for the marinara sauce and crush the garlic.
4. In a food processor; Place all the ingredients and process until smooth. Stop occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.

5. In a medium, put the zucchini pasta and marinara sauce.
6. Toss it well to coat all the pasta with the sauce.

7. Take a serving bowl, transfer the pasta and serve it immediately after garnishing it with chopped basil leaves.
8. Warm it by heating only the sauce before mixing it with the pasta and serve it after garnishing it with basil leaves.
