Zucchini Pasta





We are getting lots of Zucchini this year. I wanted to try this unique pasta where you substitute your pasta with Zucchini. I tried to keep everything in this dish raw. It was a fun alternative to regular pasta.

Ingredients
- 5 medium sized Zucchini
- 2 tomatoes roughly chopped
- 1 small onion roughly chopped
- 2 tbsp sun dried tomatoes soaked in oil
- red chili flakes add it according to your taste
- ground black pepper to taste
- salt to taste
- few sprigs of basil

Method:
1. Peal your Zucchini into thin strips. I just used a regular vegetable pealer. Save the core to make soup.
2. In a food processor add tomatoes, onion, sun dried tomatoes and pulse it a few times. Do not over process it. You want it to be slightly chunky.
3. Remove and add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and the chopped basil
4. Toss Zucchini with the sauce just before serving. If you do this earlier it will become very watery.

This is perfect for a nice summer day.
