I’m in love with raw pasta lately. I cant get enough of it, and love to mix it up with different sauces.  This one was a winner, and was a bit of an experiment as we didn’t have any  pine nuts so we we used a bag of pistachio nuts we had and it is delicious!  Yumm yumm. I don't think this is a recipe kids will like as it's rich!  I have a great tomato-based recipe for kids that we love in Raw Food 4 Kids!

To make raw pasta you will need a spiraliser! We stock them over at The Raw Food Store.



  • 3-4 large Zucchinis, spiralised

Pesto Sauce

  • 1 cup of pine nuts  (we used 1 -1/2 cups of pistachios as we didnt have any pine puts)
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, depending on taste
  • 4 cups of basil leaves (you could use any green here)
  • Juice of two limes or lemons
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste


  • To make the noddles cut one end off the zucchini and spiralise as per instructions.
  • Place all pasta sauce ingredients into a high powered blender or food processor depending on texture ( we use the optimum blender)  until the sauce is desire texture
  • Pour sauce on top of the noddles and stir through! If you use the pistachio nuts. Note pest sauce is
