This is a raw recipe from Natural Health Magazine. It's an alternative to pasta and has been a hit with friends and family who aren't raw foodists or vegetarians.

  4. Place all pesto ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth, with just a few nuts visible for texture.
  5. Gently toss the zucchini and tomato mixture with just enough pesto to coat.
  6. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
  7. Garnish with pine nuts and basil leaves and serve.
