Raw Pasta Alfredo

It's meals like this that remind me that I'm a health nut.... 


Raw Green Tea Kelp Noodles
Zucchini, chopped into small pieces
Baby Bella Mushrooms, chopped into small pieces
Grape Tomatoes, halved
Alf"raw"do sauce (recipe follows)

Alfredo-   (Adapted from a recipe in Living on Live Food by Alissa Cohen.)
1 c. cashews
1 c. macadamia nuts
1 c. pine nuts
3 T. lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
2 tsp. coconut aminos
2 T. water

* To make the Alfredo, place all of the ingredients in a high speed blender (such as a BlendTec or Vitamix), and blend until creamy.

1.  Rinse the Green Tea Kelp Noodles and combine with the pasta veggies.
2.  Massage the alfredo sauce into the noodles and veggies until well-combined.
3.  For an extra-special touch, you can add some fresh grated pepper, sliced Kalamata olives, or fresh basil... or, what the heck-  all of the above!

*Raw foods and nuts are best taken midday, when your digestion is the strongest- so this makes a great lunch.  Enjoy!  Let me know how you like it :)
