The inspiration for my latest recipe comes from my fellow blogger friend Tina Su of Think Simple Now. Her blog offers easy to follow advice on finding clarity, productivity, motivation and happiness. I highly recommend you check it out!

Todays recipe is definitely something new to me. Raw Food! A raw food diet consists mainly of plant-based foods eaten either raw or heated to no more than 115 degrees. Experts say it can alleviate many conditions, from migraines to arthritis.

The squash is cut julienne style and the pesto is made from walnuts, fresh basil leaves, fresh garlic, a dash of sea salt and a splash of organic olive oil. That’s it! From beginning to end it will only take you about 15 minutes for a completely prepared, organic meal!

I used a Mandoline to create the spaghetti-like pasta from squash. After a little research on making pasta out of raw vegetables, I’ve discovered this neat little tool called the Spiral Slicer or “Spiralizer” that turns vegetables into Angel Hair pasta in seconds!
