Photo Cred Cat Special request for my Basi, she's been smoothie'ing and loving it and now she wants to try a healthy pasta sauce her hubby will eat... apparently he likes red sauce and she likes white. I tried to throw a green her way (see pesto) but have yet to hear back on that "compromise". Here is a quick, delicious, good for you marinara sauce, thanks to Elaina Love for allowing me to share: Marinara Sauce aka Red Sauce 2 cups sun-dried tomatoes, cover with water for 2 hours 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 tbsp red onion, chopped 6 basil leaves 1-1/4 cup tomatoes OR red/yellow peppers, chopped 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt 1/8 tsp dried oregano Blend all ingredients, including soaking water from sun-dried tomatoes in blender or food processor. Use as pasta sauce for zucchini, squash noodles, kelp noodles or all three! Feel free to add black olives and mushrooms to the mix. This is a great, no cook meal with lots of versatility.

Photo Cred Cat Let's take a salad, smoothie break and make some pasta for dinner. This recipe is so delicious and easy it's a bit of a joke. Veggie Noodles 2 med zucchini OR squash OR jiciama 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt Use a spiralizer or a peeler to noodle the zucchini (peel skin first to trick the kiddies), sprinkle with salt and set aside to allow it to weep out excess water while you make your sauce. My favourite sauce for these noodles is Best Pesto Ever, mixed with some chopped peppers and tomatoes to make a delicious, satisfying and vibrant dish.
