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

Looks good! What kind of blender do you have?

I'm still using my regular Hamilton Beach kitchen blender. When it wears out I'll by a new BlendTec or something far, the regular blender is holding out just fine. *sigh*grin*

I would love a fancy one too...a Blentec or a Vitamix. I have an Oster and it seems to work just fine. I'm waiting for it to burn out!

You eat it cold? Not sure about that but I like the idea of grating zucchini like that-- I use it for salads all the time and in my homemade soups.

It's not actually cold, it's room temperature. Believe me, it's full of fresh flavor and I haven't missed the 'warm' food...which I usually burn my tongue on anyway, in my eagerness to eat. ;) It's very filling, especially with the salad. You feel like you've eaten spaghetti, but without all the gluten, wheat, sugar, etc. Just fresh wholesome yumminess.
