a little time consuming, but really not that bad if you have a mandolin. my zasta turned out beautiful! 🙂 but what can i say, i’m a little bias towards my baby zastas.

this delicious is easy, fresh, and filling! full of great vitamins!

Ingredients (3-4 servings):

2 zucchinis, cut zasta style

1 large can diced tomatoes

1/2 onion, diced

2 tsp dried basil

2 tsp dried oregano

2 tsp dried parsley

1 tsp raw sugar

olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

salt and pepper to taste

fresh spinach (optional)

artichoke hearts (optional)

cheese of preference for toppings

Directions:

1. Saute your garlic in a sauce pan for 2-3 minutes on medium-high heat. Then add your onions.

5. Once the zukes are sliced horizontally, slice them into matchstick slices.

6. Once the zasta is ready, plate it up with a mixture of beans, artichoke hearts, and sauce. (The sauce will cook the zucchini a little bit if you put it on while it is still hot.) Add fresh basil, feta or goat cheese, or any other toppings of choosing! Enjoy a plate full of fresh, raw veggies!
