I mated a couple recipes from Alissa Cohen and Ani Phyo here. I've just never been a fan of the marinara sauce that Alissa pairs her pasta with. When I tried Ani's recipe, I thought, "this sauce is great, but it would be BETTER on zucchini pasta...
This is a traditional marinara sauce with the addition of dates to give it a mild sweet flavor, and some sunflower seeds to add creaminess
I made this dish for a raw potluck this weekend. All the classic italian flavours are there which makes this a favourite for friends and family who are not raw. You can make a big batch of pesto up to keep for the week and just do the zucchini on the night.
I have been reminiscing about my stay at Tree of Life last spring and all the wonderful aspargus dishes we had. Here is my inspired dish. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
