Basil & Black Olive Pasta

Since my getting sick earlier this week, I haven't been able to stomach anything too intense tasting. Here is a delicate, lightly flavored dish that I've been enjoying for days.

Basil & Black Olive Pasta

Serves 3

2 medium size zucchinis, spiralized into noodles (I used a mixture of angel and spaghetti)
3 or 4 large basil leaves, finely slivered
6 kalamata olives, finely slivered
1/4 cup cubed red bell pepper
1/2 small patty pan or yellow squash, cubed (optional)
1 or 2 tablespoons olive oil
Tamari or salt, to taste
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 fresh garlic clove, crushed or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
Pinch cayenne

Toss noodles with other ingredients and serve immediately.

Optional: Serve topped with mushroom slices marinated in a little olive oil, tamari, garlic and tarragon.

Carmella's Notes:
~ I've also made this with chopped tomato. Delish!

~ Sorry for the imprecise measurements... I just kinda add the dressing ingredients until it tastes right.

~ I'd recommend not adding the salt/tamari until the last minute as it will cause the zucchini to 'weep'.

Enjoy!

What do Kalamata olives taste like? I've never had them. I'm not a big fan of black olives, but LOVE green olives. I'm guessing green and black olives are not raw though. Are Kalamata olives raw?

ncadotte,

Kalamata olives are a type of Greek black olives. You're right, as far as I know, they aren't raw. However, you can purchase raw olives online (usually from Peru) that have been sundried. Check these out.

I just tried this recipe. I added the chopped tomatoes AND the marinated mushrooms. It was fabulous. It was my first raw meal that felt like a MEAL. (I'm still new to raw and trying things). Thanks.
