Zucchini Noodles with Marinaria Sauce

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I prepared this dish for a (un)cooking class that I taught  last week.  You will have to forgive me for the photos.    Because this was for a class, I made 60 sample servings and failed to make the grand-poobah dish for the photo shoot.   My whole approach with this dish was to present a low glycemic recipe and not only did I accomplish that, it tasted wonderful to boot!  I had oodles of fun making all the zucchini noodles.  If you don’t have a spiralizer in your kitchen, I highly recommend the investment.  Not only do they make wonderful veggie noodles, they are a great way to get your kids to interact with you in the kitchen.  To see their sweet little eyes brighten as they watch noodles form is just priceless.   They will be so excited they might even like eating their veggies too!

Recipe adapted from: Practically Raw

Ingredients: yields 2 cups =  4 servings (1/4 cup)

  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes (soak if hard for 20 minutes)
  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes (seeded and rough chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp raw agave nectar
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp cold-pressed olive oil
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 medium zucchini (spiralized)


  1. Create zucchini noodles and set aside.
  2. Combine all the other ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until well combined.  Sauce should be thick.
  3. Tip: you can substitute raw apple cider vinegar for balsamic vinegar for if you want to retain an all raw dish.

    Hi! This looks so good! I would love to make it but I have Lyme disease and cannot have any sweeteners (like agave) or nutritional yeast. I wonder what I can use instead of those things?
