New Raw: Zucchini Fetuccini with Tomato Sauce
I just love the taste of the delicious fresh tomatoes combined with all the herbs.
Preparation Time: 25 min
10 plum tomatoes
2 lbs zucchini
2 medium garlic cloves, pealed and chopped
1 shallot, finely dices
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 tablespoon fresh basil, finely chopped
½ tablespoon fresh oregano, finely chopped
½ teaspoon red chili flakes
2 tablespoons pine-nuts, chopped
the juice of 1 freshly squeezed lemon
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
kosher salt, to taste
Grate the tomatoes with stainless steel box grater using the largest grain.
In a bowl mix finely chopped herbs with the diced shallots and garlic. Add salt, freshly ground black pepper and chili flakes. Combine well with 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Pour the grated tomatoes and stir for couple of minutes, as all ingredients release their aromas.
