Sun Dried Tomato Pumpkin Seed Pesto 2

by Susan on September 29, 2009


Another way to enjoy your Sun Dried Tomato Pumpkin Seed Pesto. Yesterday, we placed it on a tomato slice and made a great appetizer. Today, enjoy the wonderful flavor and health benefits of pumpkin seeds in a main dish! Combined with zucchini noodles and heirloom tomatoes, this dish makes a filling lunch or dinner that will fit beautifully into your raw food menu. If you don’t have heirlooms, any other flavorful tomato will work.

Pumpkin Seed Pesto Pasta

Run zucchini through spiral cutter to get noodles. Alternatively, you can cut the zucchini into very thin noodle shapes. Massage the pesto into the noodles. This works best by hand. Once the noodles are coated, mix in sun dried tomatoes. Place on plate and top with fresh chopped tomatoes, pine nut parmesan and fresh basil.

That recipe looks awesome! I was commenting on lots of your posts awhile back (I am the girl who’s parents still live in Excelsior and I grew up in Minnetonka) but anyway, I still read all your recipes and am always in love with what I see.

Delicious! So colorful and I know flavorful. I love making pumpkin seed pesto but by adding the tomatoes it adds a whole new appearance!

Oh wow, that is a great looking meal. I am going to try making that pumpkin seed pesto – I am always trying to find ways to eat more pumpkin seeds for all their zinc-y goodness!

Yes! On top of everything else, they are full of Zinc!

This also looks sooo good!!
Same question, hope you don’t mind: how many people does this recipe serve?


Susan October 2, 2009 at 7:26 am

This could easily serve 4.


Susan October 2, 2009 at 7:27 am

Depending on how much zucchini you use, you could also serve 4.
