- John's Living Angel Hair Pasta
- by John H. Kohler
3 zucchini (green, yellow, sunburst or ???)
16 oz cherry tomatoes (very flavorful) or 1 lb. reg tomatoes)
1/2 small white onion
a few fresh basil leaves
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1 red, orange or yellow bell pepper (not green)
2 tsp. "pizza seasoning" - dried (Italian spices)
dulse flakes to taste
2 tablespoons of chia seeds (optional)
A little Olive Oil (optional)
Most recipes that make a "marinara sauce" always used sun
dried tomatoes. Since I strive to eat minimally processed foods, and less dried
(concentrated foods) I came up with this alternative recipe to the
"conventional" marinara sauces that used dried tomatoes as a thickener. In
my recipe, the chia seeds will help to thicken the sauce.
1. Use a Spiral
Slicer (Saladacco) to turn the zucchini into angel hair pasta.
2. Place all items (except for chia seeds) in a food processor or
blender, and PULSE CHOP to a "chunky" consistency.. I don't recommend pureeing
3. Pour sauce into a bowl and add chia seeds, stirring them to
the sauce. Allow to "set" for 30 minutes to allow sauce to thicken.
4. Pour Sauce over pasta and enjoy :)
The above amount is for a one or two person serving. You might
need to make more.
