Directions

  • 1. Make a batch of raw alfredo sauce.
  • 2. Spiralize your zucchini. 
  • 3. Chop your "primavera" vegetables by hand. You can use any vegetables that you like. But remember that simpler actually tastes better, so don't add too many types of chopped veggies. Try to use 3 types of chopped veggies max. Ideas: button mushroom, tomatoes, red onion, green pepper, broccoli, chopped cilantro, etc.
  • 4. Sprinkle with a bit of pepper once done.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw pasta primavera... mimicking the taste of good old fashioned Italian pasta in a creamy pasta sauce with fresh chopped veggies. Sounds gourmet, huh? It is! But not as hard as it looks, and no advanced prep is required.

You will require a blender and a spiralizer for this recipe. The blender is required to create the alfredo sauce, and the spiralizer is needed to make the fancy noodles. Alternatively you could use kelp noodles instead of the zucchini noodles. Or if you don't have a spiralizer you can use a carrot peeler to make "noodles" out of the zucchini, but they won't look as nice as mine do :)

Also, you can make this recipe in advance, but do not actually ASSEMBLE it until you are ready to eat. So... you can make the sauce and spiralize the noodles, but keep them in the fridge separately. (Don't actually combine sauce and noodles until ready to eat because "sogginess" will occur!)

Note about alfredo sauce: If you make a full serving of the raw alfredo sauce it keeps in the fridge very well for 3-4 days. One full batch of alfredo sauce makes 4 servings of pasta. (Also, do NOT try to make a half-batch of alfredo sauce because there won't be enough volume in your blender to spin and make the sauce properly, so you really need to make a full batch of alfredo sauce.)

Another alternative sauce: If you have leftover raw ranch dressing that could work instead of the alfredo sauce.

I loved this. I just used a peeler for the zucchini. I didn't have enough zucchini, so I used two zucchini and two yellow squash.

can this be made over brown rice pasta? I did try it with the zucchini and i really was surprised how much I liked it. def going to make it this way again the only thing is my noodles came out a little on the wide side cause i used a peeler lol. But would like to have other options. Thank You so much.

Hi Linda,

I am sure it would taste good over brown rice pasta, but it would not be considered raw. However, if you are okay with that then go for it!

Thank you so much for these down to earth and not over ridiculous fancy recipes. These are basic and simple recipes that you can find the ingredients to at any local store. It saves money, time, stress and energy. I'm a mother of three and stay at home. I had to shop here, here, here, and there. Trying to find a way to be healthy, without compromising one of the above issues! I was pulling my hair out trying to find simplicity! Thanks for lifting one of my heaviest burdens by sharing these recipes.

This recipe is amazing! We made it just as instructed with the exception of the cherry tomatoes; I found a container of small, organic, heirloom tomatoes and just had to have them. My 22 year old son went nuts over this dish, and asked if I'd find more raw food for him. Thank-You!

Is there anything I could substitute for cashews? I'm allergic.
