Ingredients

Pasta

  • 3 medium-large zucchini, spiraled and trimmed (800 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved (for topping)
  • toppings: fresh basil

Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

  • 1/2 cup cashews, soaked*
  • 3/4 cup sun dried tomatoes**
  • 1/2 cup packed basil
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Make the sauce. Place all ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Set aside.
  • Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add olive oil and let heat up, about 30 seconds. Add zucchini noodles and let cook for 3-5 minutes until al dente. Add garlic powder and pepper and stir to incorporate. Then add sun dried tomato sauce, stirring to thoroughly combine.
  • Top with fresh basil and cherry tomatoes if preferred and enjoy!

Notes

*Place cashews in a bowl. Cover with water. Let soak as long as overnight or pop them in the microwave for 45 seconds to a minute.
**I used sun dried tomatoes packed in oil and drained the oil. You can also use fresh sun dried tomatoes.
