Raw Zucchini Pasta with Tomato Sauce

Lots of people have been asking me for this recipe, so here 'tis

1 large or 2 medium Zucchini
1 tomato
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes, soaked or oil-packed
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 red capsicum, chopped
1-2 cloves garlic
1/2 red onion
handful of parsley
handful of basil
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
dash cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

Spiralise the zucchini and spread out on paper towel to dry. Dice the tomato and cut the basil into fine slices. Set aside. Roughly chop all other ingredients then blend until it reaches a sauce consistency. Place the zucchini in a bowl and cut through once or twice to make the 'pasta' strands smaller. Mix in the sauce and diced tomato and serve topped with basil.

Variation: Puttanesca Sauce: increase the cayenne to 1/8 teaspoon and stir in 2 tablespoons of thinly sliced black olives to the finished sauce.
