Gluten free - dairy free - grain free - IN THE RAW!
While I enjoyed pasta, my body did not! Pasta bloats me. Period. I felt terrible after eating a plate of pasta, no matter how small. I may be gluten intolerant; I've never had the issue diagnosed. I generally stay away from doctors unless I absolutely need one. If something doesn't agree with me, I eventually revisit why I'm eating it at all. Eventually, I stopped eating pasta because I could no longer deny the very strong and loud message my body was sending me - STOP EATING PASTA!
As with pasta, bread, rice and pretty much any grain did not agree with me. Eventually, I cut it all out. Today, my tummy is a happy camper absent the grains.
The plate of pasta you see in the above photo, is pasta that both tastes great and makes me feel great! The noodles are made from zucchini, in the raw! The sauce is made from fresh vine-ripened cherry tomatoes, green onion, fresh basil, oregano, sea salt and olive oil. Sounds so simple, but WOW, what flavour! You'll have to try it to believe it.

Turn 2 medium sized zucchinis into long spaghetti using a "spiralizer". Okay, so you will need this nifty gadget in order to make these lovely raw vegan noodles. Mine cost me $29.95 which I bought online from Upaya Naturals, and it was well worth it. I use it all the time to make lovely raw vegan pasta!
To make the tomato sauce, blend 1 cup of vine-ripened cherry tomatoes, 1 green onion, a few leaves of fresh basil, a hearty dash of dried oregano, a good pinch of high quality sea salt (Celtic sea salt is my favourite), a half teaspoon of raw honey, a dash of dried garlic and a drizzle of olive oil together until well combined. I like to use my Magic Bullet for this task. I know, I know, another tool - but I'm serious when I say that I use these little gadgets all the time and they are money well spent.
Then, pour the sauce over your noodles and, before tossing, add some freshly chopped cherry tomatoes, a sprinkle of dried oregano and a few torn fresh basil leaves. Voila! In minutes - a lovely raw vegan dish you can enjoy with your loved ones!
If you love your food a little spicy, add some fresh or dried chilli to the Bullet before blending the tomato sauce and you'll really fire up the dish.
