pulp pasta (raw)

i love zucchini pasta in the summer. not only is it nice not to have a big pot of boiling pasta on your stove, but it's lighter in calories. and who doesn't have a ton of zucchini right about now? this recipe uses tomato-veggie juice pulp, because i'm always looking for creative ways to use it up. waste not, want not, right? of course, if you don't make juice, you could just as easily sub marinara.


  • 1 zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1/4 whole onion
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil
  • 1 dash sea salt
  • 1 dash fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • pulp from tomato fusion juice
use a spiralizer to make noodles from your zucchini. combine tomato juice pulp (or something similar) and rest of the sauce ingredients into a food processor and pulse a few times. i like my sauce a little on the chunky side, but you could add more water or olive oil for a smoother sauce.

pour over noodles and serve. it doesn't need to be heated up unless you want to - i like mine at room temperature in the hot summer.

Hey,

Your blog is really neat and I like how you post almost EVERY recipe. I am really interested in trying to do a raw day once a week and I was wondering about that zucchini pasta. How do you get it spiraled like that? Any special tools I need?

I'm such a raw pasta monster in the summer! It's just so much lighter & fresher. Love how you use your juicer leftovers! If only I had a juicer...

Thanks for the tips! I will try using applesauce in my baking again, maybe it was just a jank recipe. Haha

I've been meaning to try zucchini "noodles" for the longest time... Thanks for reminding me! It just sounds so fresh and tasty, I've absolutely got to do it this season.

I am not into the raw thing to be honest but these noodles really inspired me to at least try it once or as a side. I have zucchini now too so i have no excuse.
