Raw zucihinni pasta marinara

There is nothing like walking to the local Farmer's Market picking up a couple of things and going home to eat them That is what we did tonight for dinner. I picked up a medium green zucihinni, some fresh basil,a red bell pepper,and 2 big tomatoes and I made raw zucihinni marinara. So good. It is pretty basic for raw foods. You need a food processor & a saladeco,spirializer which is what I use or a veggie peeler.

1 medium green zucihinni some people peel it I do not
4 small tomatoes or 2 large ones
1 medium red bell pepper
1 clove elephant garlic or about 4 regular garlic cloves.
1 tbs. oregano
1/2 tbs. chili powder
several fresh basil leaves.

Rinse everything. Put the tomatoes,garlic,1/2 the bell pepper,oregano & chili powder in the food processor & pulse. Prepare the zuchhnni with your spirializer,saladeco or use a veggie peeler to make long ribbons. Chop the basil leaves. Combine everything but the basil into a bowl mixing well & serve sprinkling basil on top. Add whatever you want to the marinara. So easy & good for you. And you feel great knowing that you bought those ingredients just a few minutes ago and they were picked within a day locally so they still have their nutrients. :}
