Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini & Marinara Sauce

2 Zucchini
3 ripe tomato
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes
1 cup Mushrooms
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic
3/8 teaspoon salt
1 dash black pepper (optional)
1 dash cayenne

Recipe Directions for Zucchini & Marinara Sauce

  1. Cut the zucchini into thin noodles using a vegetable spiral slicer. Alternatively, use a vegetable peeler to create long ribbons, or ?fettuccini?, by drawing the peeler down all sides of the zucchini until you reach the core.

  2. Place all the ingredients in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process until smooth. Stop occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Marinara Sauce will keep for three days.

  3. Place in a medium bowl and toss with the marinara. Serve immediately.

  4. Note: To serve warm, heat the sauce gently on the stove for a minute, taking care not to overheat it. Toss with the pasta and serve immediately.
