SPAGHETTI with Alfredo or Marinara

Okay - maybe in a small way I am thinking of opening a little catoring service. Well - anyway - I am tonight. I am delivering this dinner to a friend tonight who wants to start eating raw and just wants a little boost. Tonight she is getting spaghetti with both an alfredo sauce and a marinara sauce, tossed salad and my homemade fresh flaxseed crackers. I also took her a piece of the apple/walnut pie for dessert.

This is a really quick picture (before it was all gone) of the zucchini spaghetti. I got one of those
little kitchen tools that make zucchini into an "angel hair pasta".
My whole family was extremely impressed. Jim wanted two helpings and
so did Joey. This bowl was packed - and every bit was gone before I got any.

Here are the two sauces I made. I don't feel like giving you the whole recipes because
it's too much typing - but if you want it - ask me and I really will be happy to give it
to you. The Alfredo sauce was made from macadamia and pine nuts. Oo-la-la.
The marinara sauce was the usual homemade Italian spaghetti sauce. We put the bowls in the dehydrator and it heated them up really quite nice without cooking them. That was a treat - warm sauces!

I suppose because there is so much sauce leftover - we will be having spaghetti again
real soon! Ah....just come over. We'd love to share with you!

PS I also love that you "give away" your recipes. People who are so giving like you get a return, multiplied.

Hello - I just made up a simple tomato sauce - you can make it up as you go too.
I used 3 cups of cut up tomatoes
3 T. olive oil
1/4 c cilantro
1/4 c basil
1 T parsley
3 cloves of garlic
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp ground up flax seed
2 tsp sale
3 pitted soaked dates.
Mix all together in food processor
and let it set a couple of hours in the
dehydrator. Top with tomatoes, olives,bell peppers and red onions.
