Yum! Topped with avocado, cherry tomatoes, and scallions. The raw noodles are made by spirulizing zucchini with a Spiral Vegetable Slicer. See the slicer at work here. Not only do you get an extra dose of veggies this way but you also avoid all the extra calories in grain pasta. Without the sauce, this is probably 15 calories worth of “pasta” if even that!
