Fresh ‘Pasta’ Layers


1 big zucchini (courgette)
1 big eggplant (aubergine)
1/2 lemon, the juice
Extra virgin olive oil
Himalayan salt to taste

Prepare and wash all the vegetables. Leave the skin on.
Pre-heat oven to 3550 F/1800 C.


MARINATED ZUCCHINI

Prepare the zucchini, thinly sliced with a mandolin or cut with a sharp knife, roughly 1/8 inch or 1/4 cm.
Marinate the slices with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and 3-4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, for about 30 minutes.


ROASTED EGGPLANT

Cut the eggplant into thin slices with a sharp knife or a mandolin, roughly 1/8 inch or 1/4 cm.
Lay the eggplant slices on a baking sheet.
Brush on both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Grill or roast until the slices of the eggplant are tender, about 5 minutes for each side of the eggplant.
Pay attention it doesn’t burn.

Variations:

You can use zucchini only or you can bake or grill both, the zucchini a little less than the eggplant.


Fillings


TOMATO SAUCE

1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked 1 hour or more
2 big tomatoes
2 cloves garlic
1 small onion
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Himalayan salt to taste

Process in a food processor or blender until smooth.
Drain the tomato sauce if it becomes too watery, and use it in other meals.


GREEN PESTO

2 cups fresh parsley
2 cups basil leaves
1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Himalayan salt to taste

Blend all ingredients. Keep a thick consistency.



RICOTTA DE MACADAMIA

2 cups macadamia nuts, soaked at least 2 hours
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon yeast-free bouillon
1 tablespoon fresh oregano (or dried)
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
Fresh-ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup water (or more)

Process all ingredients together in a blender or food processor, adding as little of the water as possible, until a fluffy consistency is achieved. You can use 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil for flavor and richness.

As an alternative to macadamia nuts, you can use cashew nuts or a mix of both.


SPINACH LAYER

2 handfuls of fresh spinach.

Mix the spinach, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Let it stay for 10 minutes.
