Zucchini “Pasta”

This simple and fresh veggie pasta dish can be served warm or cold.

It is vegan, dairy and gluten free!  4 servings.

  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half (use yellow, orange & red for colorful presentation)
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced or crushed
  • 3 Tbsp. torn fresh basil, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 medium zucchini, grated or thinly sliced lengthwise and cut into ¼˝long strips
  • Sea salt to taste
  • ¼ cup pine nuts (or chopped walnuts)

In a serving bowl, combine tomatoes, garlic, basil, and oil. Add salt and let marinate for 60 minutes.
