Zucchini Pasta: I Might Die.

As I told ya last night, I’m trying to get every last thing eaten in this house before we depart for a few days.

It just so happened that my newest Whole Living magazine appeared in my mailbox the other day.

It just so happened that the front cover food photo left me weak and speechless with desire.

It just so happened that I had exactly the ingredients the recipe on the front cover called for.

It just so happened that for approximately 4 days, 17 hours and 36 minutes I’ve eagerly waited to make the recipe on the front cover with the ingredients that I had that it called for.

It just so happened that I did make the recipe on the front cover with the ingredients that I had that it called for.

And it just so happens I may never be able to be reached again as I have run off with this dish, on horseback, into the night.

(and I forgot my cell at home.)

Zucchini Pasta:

What it took for 1:

* 1 zucchini, cut into thin strips

* 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

* 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced

* 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

* 4 basil leaves, torn

* pinch of sea salt

* 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

In a large bowl, combine the garlic, tomatoes, walnuts, basil, salt and oil. Let sit for about 20 minutes, if you can. (I couldn’t.) Toss with zucchini!

    Oh good grief! I have made something similar but just with zucchini, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. This sounds like a hundred times better.

      You're kidding! I'm sure yours was just as badical though. If you ever come to KC, you're coming over. We're drinking and cooking together. And drinking.

    looks mouthwatering - but how do you get to slice the zucchini so thin? any tricks of the trade to share?

      Hey Epicurea! I actually used a little tool that juliennes vegetables. But I'm sure you could you use a mandolin for the slices and then use a knife for the lengthwise strips!

    So you don’t cook the zucchini? Is this a cold zucchini salad?
