Raw Version

  2. Whichever method you choose, make your noodles to your liking and set aside
  3. Place your toasted pecans in your food processor and pulse until you have small chunks, not quite flour consistency
  4. Add your can of fire-roasted tomatoes and process on high to make a smooth sauce
  5. Plate your noodles and dress with the sauce
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to your liking and enjoy
For the Hot Version
  1. Follow steps 1-4 from above
  2. Place your zucchini noodles in a colander in the sink and heavily salt them, they need to sit for 20 minutes and drain all the water
  3. Preheat a saute pan on medium heat and a sauce pan on medium heat
  4. Place your tomato sauce in the sauce pan, cover, and let simmer until hot
  5. Using a fat of your choice (bacon fat, avocado oil, coconut oil) saute your noodles for 1-2 minutes in your saute pan to just warm them up
  6. Transfer your noodles to a plate, dress with your sauce and enjoy
