Pasta With a Twist

My friend and raw goodness goddess Jeni Cook posted this recipe for living pasta with Marinara sauce.

Here is a living food recipe that tastes as good if not better than the cooked version.

For the pasta:
2 big, fresh courgettes

For the Marinara sauce:
2 cups tomatoes
1 cup red bell pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic
Large pinch cayenne (optional)
12 sun dried tomatoes, soaked in olive oil
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
2 Medjool dates, pitted (optional)

Using a potato peeler, peel long thin strips of courgette to make the pasta.
Place the courgette pasta strips into a large bowl.
Pile all of the Marinara ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Pour sauce over courgette pasta and serve.
Try topping with capers, green or black olives or chopped baby yellow tomatoes.
