Recipe 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.

another absolute home run recipe! and i'm SO glad it makes 4 (generous) servings which means my husband and i get to look forward to it again in a couple of days (or maybe tomorrow since why wait, it was freakin yummy!). i'm not sure how you nailed that "alfredo" taste so perfectly but you did, and with a simple easy recipe, not dozens of ingredients. thank you! xo

Hi Renay!

I'm so glad you enjoyed this one :) It definitely does the trick for a savory creamy sauce, that's for sure.

Do you happen to know of any substitutions for the cashews? We have nut allergies and have to omit all nuts.

Hi Nicole,

Sorry, there is no good substitution for cashews in this recipe. (Except for macadamia nuts, which are probably a no-no for you, as well.)

In my recipes, cashews are used for creaminess.

YUM!! This recipe is oh so delicious! The sauce lasts for 3-4 days in fridge so I make the sauce on Sunday and bring it to work the next 2 days. I bring my spriluzer and make my zucchini pasta at work, then add sauce and precut veggies! Gives me a burst of energy to get through the day! 😊

Do you have any suggestion for mushroom substitution?

Hi Ainsley,

The mushrooms aren't integral at all - feel free to omit them entirely, or substitute for your favorite veggie, like sliced red bell pepper, celery or whatever!
