Zucchini Pasta Three Ways: Arrabiata, Alfredo, Pesto
(arrabiata recipe below)

Grape and Tarragon Salad

We're doing raw all this week, so expect to see some favorites (along with some new dishes). Here's a familiar dish, with a slight, er... twist.

Raw Arrabiata Sauce

2 cloves of garlic
1 tbs. shallots minced
1/2 cup cherry tomato, roughly chopped
1/2 cup sun-dried tomato (soaked for 30 minutes)
1 serrano chile, minced
1 tsp. nama shoyu
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. parsley
black pepper to taste
olive oil

Put all the ingredients (except the olive oil) into the vita-mix and puree. Slowly drizzle enough olive oil (depends on how juicy the tomatoes are) until creamy. Check for seasoning, and it should be pretty spicy.

For assembly: Place the arrabiata sauce in a small bowl. Spiral cut the zucchini into long strands. Twirl the pasta around with a small fork, and dip into the sauce. Turn the fork to coat with the sauce -- it's best to turn it along the edge of the bowl as this helps pull extra sauce off.
