Zucchini Pasta has become one of my favourite bases for a healthy, feel good, ‘comfort food’ meal. It is easy to make and works great either raw, boiled, or combined with whole wheat pasta to spare yourself the extra carbs (and the guilt and bloaty feeling pasta can bring).
I ate my first Zucchini Pasta dish at a Rawlicious location in Toronto (located in the Junction) and was blown away by just how phenomenal and filling this veggie substitution was in replace of my usual pasta.
So, here is a great little recipe for a cold Zucchini Linguini dish. I made it last week for my Sweetheart and he was blown away!
Use a peeler or vegetable dicer (if you have one) to create long strands of Zucchini. Toss Zucchini with sliced Green Olives, Cherry Tomatoes or diced Roma Tomatoes, Pine Nuts (Walnuts also work well), fresh chopped Basil, two cloves of diced Garlic and Olive Oil. Garnish with fresh basil and serve!
Use Zucchini Linguini with your favourite pasta, served warm or cold it makes a great healthy choice in replace of pasta!
