Vegetable Angel Hair Zucchini “Pasta”

Ingredients:

3 zucchini
16 oz cherry tomatoes (very flavorful) or 1 lb. regular tomatoes
1/2 small white onion
A few fresh basil leaves
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1 red, orange or yellow bell pepper (not green)
2 tsp. dried Italian spices or oregano, basil, salt & pepper
A little Olive Oil (optional)

Directions: Use a Spiral slicer to cut Zucchini into angel hair like strands. Place all other items in a food processor or blender, and PULSE CHOP to obtain a “chunky” consistency. We don’t recommend pureeing the mixture. Pour sauce into a bowl and allow to “set” for 30 minutes to allow sauce to thicken. Pour sauce over your Zucchini “pasta”.
