Preparation:

Step 1: Use a julienne peeler or spiralizer to turn zucchini into noodle-like strips.

Step 2: Put all the zucchini noodles in a bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir it well to mix the salt evenly. Allow the noodles to sit for about half an hour so that water can be drained.

Step 3: To make tomato basil sauce combine and blend all ingredients under the tomato basil section. Blend until you get the consistency you want. I like my sauce a bit chunky.

Step 4: Add tomato basil sauce to zucchini pasta. Top 0ff with cherry tomatoes, Kalamata olives, fresh basil and rosemary

You can have this meal raw or slightly cooked.  Bon appétit :)
