This raw pasta marinara with walnut pesto is one of my go-to raw dinners because it's low in carbs, loaded with nutrients, and really delicious. It took me awhile to get used to eating this raw - I mean, really, spaghetti should be served hot, right? But once I tried it I could just taste all the nutrients! Mixing it all up really blends the flavors. My husband, Tom, cannot wrap his head around eating raw food … so since I have my dinner alone (he works 2nd shift), raw food it is!! Interesting, I think that when I eat raw vegan at night, my evening cravings went away. Hmmmm……………..

Zucchini Noodles or Zoodles, as they’re often called:
To serve, stir the marinara sauce through the zucchini noodles, and top with the pesto.
Note: For added flavor you can sprinkle some vegan Parmesan over the top.
Clean and simple eating is my goal. I love to cook and enjoy trying new recipes. All recipes included cover several diet types...raw vegan, vegan, vegetarian, low carb, and ketogenic. I have tried to remember to tag the recipes appropriately, but it is what it is.
