This recipe comes courtesy of Judita Wignall in Going Raw

Sauce

3/4 Cup cashews, soaked 2 hours

3/4 cup water

3 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes

1 1/2 Tbsp fresh oregano or 1 1/2 tsp dried

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp agave nectar

1 clove garlic

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)

Noodles

6 medium-size zucchini, peeled

Garnishes

3 tomatoes, diced

2 Tbsp finely chopped thyme (or fresh basil)

Freshly ground pepper to taste, (optional)

Preparation

For the sauce, process all ingredients in blender until very smooth.

Use a mandolin to slice zucchini into long flat strips. Stack the strips and use a knife to slice zucchini into noodle-like ribbons.

Assembly

In a large bowl, very gently combine the sauce and noodles, using only enough sauce to coat the noodles. You will probably have sauce left over. Garnish with tomatoes, thyme, and fresh pepper.

Notes: If using a Vita-Mix, blend the sauce until it heats up, and serve over room-temperature noodles.

It's best not to combine noodles with sauce until right before serving, or dish can become watery.

Also, be careful when using the mandoline, as they can be incredibly sharp!!
