Zesty Zucchini Pasta in Creamy Tomato Sauce
Directions
8 STEPS
1
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the fusilli pasta and cook according to package instructions. Once cooked, drain the pasta and set aside.
2
Trim the ends of the zucchini and slice into half-inch rounds. Finely chop the garlic cloves.
3
Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the sliced zucchini and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the chopped garlic, cooking for an additional 1-2 minutes until garlic is fragrant and zucchini is lightly browned.
4
Stir in the canned crushed tomatoes and simmer for 3 minutes until the mixture starts to bubble.
5
In a blender or food processor, combine the zucchini-tomato mixture, coconut milk, smoked paprika, 4 of the fresh basil leaves, salt, black pepper, and raw cashews. Blend on high for 2 minutes until the sauce is smooth and creamy.
6
Adjust seasonings by adding more salt, black pepper, or smoked paprika to taste.
7
Pour the sauce over the cooked fusilli pasta and gently mix until well combined.
8
Garnish the dish with the remaining fresh basil leaves, torn or sliced, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
