Zucchini Noodle Recipes That Taste Like Real Pasta Dishes

Pasta is comfort food, but a bowl of pasta is bowl full of carbs. If you are using canned or jarred red sauces, you are adding a lot of sodium to the meal. Too much acidity in the body can lead to high blood pressure or high cholesterol, while eating a lot of carbs can cause bowel irregularities and weight gain. But pasta is delicious and easy to make, which is why leaving it behind can be difficult.

 

When you switch to a raw foods diet, you don’t want to eat salads all the time. You have to keep your taste buds interested in raw food, which is why we have put together a list of raw vegetable noodle recipes that taste like the real deal. If you make these recipes, let us know how you liked them. Tag us on social media and post a picture of your food so we can see how it turned out!

#3: Lemon Zucchini Pasta With Cashew Cheese

This raw recipe takes a little longer because you salt the zucchini noodles in order for the water to drain out. This helps them absorb the flavors of the sauce, and it adds a little extra texture to the noodles.
