Hey guys! Happy Thursday! What are you all up to for the weekend?
This week, the craving for pasta hit, and it hit hard. I wasn’t all that excited about doing another tomato based sauce, because I have blogged about that enough already.
So in the spirit of something even newer than zucchetti, I did zucchetti with a raw pesto! I was inspired by another member of 30 bananas a day dot com, called Terry, and you can find her blog here; http://terileventhalsblog.blogspot.com. She made a spinach based pesto, and thus my pesto was born!
I started with the greenery;
I had spinach, a whole bunch of dill, a whole bunch of basil, half a bunch of parsley, a garlic clove and some apple cider vinegar for the sauce. You could use citrus juice on leu of the vinegar if you want to.
Throw all your sauce stuff into a blender, or your second born child the Vitamix;
Pour your sauce into your favorite big, big bowl. At this point I added some stevia and some nutmeg! It was so so so good. Nutmeg is a classical french pair with spinach. Don’t knock it till you try bats!
I think that this would make an amazing salad dressing too! You could also blend in some tomato or bell pepper for more flavor.
Next, do your noodle thang;
Do whatever you want with the unusually long shlong;
Mix it up and revel at the green glory;
I ate it with some orange, blackberries and some mango;
It was amazing.
Hope you try this newer twist! Do you have any newer twists on your plate to share?
