Zucchetti - not your average everyday Spaghetti!
Zucchetti is like Spaghetti... only much better! Zucchetti is ALIVE with flavor and nutrients! My son and husband LOVE LOVE LOVE Zucchetti!
It's an easy and very quick Raw meal!
First - take your organic RAW Zucchini and grate it into lovely, long noodle-like strips. I use the large grating side on my cheese grater & it works great. Pile your 'noodles' up in a dish.
Second - take out your blender. Put in cherry or grape tomatoes (about 2 cups, but you'll have to eyeball it to meet your serving needs). I also used a combination of red and yellow sweet tomatoes this time.
Third - add to the blender, 2 tsp. Olive Oil (extra virgin best, but any will do), and your seasonings. Season to taste. I used a bit of fresh Rosemary and some dried Oregano.
Fourth - whir, whir, whir the blender until your preferred smoothness.
Fifth - pour Tomato 'Sauce' over the Zucchetti!
Add a salad and DINNER IS SERVED! The kids will LOVE this! Bon Apetite!
Peace & Green Eating! Slendie
