Raw Creamy Zucchini Pasta


This raw, creamy pasta dish uses thinly-shredded squash and zucchini instead of grain-based pasta. It is amazingly delicious – and as a pasta-lover, I was happily surprised by how much I loved it!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED (serves 4):

  • 1 organic zucchini
  • 1 organic yellow squash
  • 2 large organic tomatoes
  • 1 organic avocado
  • 1/4 cup raw, organic cashews
  • 1 Tbs Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbs Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives
  • pine nuts for garnish


  1. Using a vegetable peeler, shred the zucchini & squash very thinly (using almost no pressure).
  2. In a blender, combine the avocado, tomato, and cashews. Add in the Italian seasoning, salt and Nutritional Yeast.
  3. Pour the sauce mixture over the “pasta”, top with olives and pine nuts, and serve at room temperature.

    I am so totally gonna try this. Made vegan pesto over zucchini noodles last week–can’t get enough healthy pasta! Thank you!

  6. OH. MY. GOD.
    I am trying this TOMORROW with that lonely avocado I haven’t been inspired to do anything with, AND some of the squash that’s taking over my garden… would a spiral slicer work just as well? (I have one and have used it, what, maybe twice?)
