I followed this recipe for the sauce
It was absolutely delicious!

- Sweet Basil
- Cayenne pepper
- Himalayan salt
- 1 serving package of konjac noodles
- 1 food processor
Marinara Sauce Recipe
- Chop up all ingredients and add to food processor
- My food processor is quite small so I first blended the fresh tomatoes, then took half out and added the bell peppers-blended, then added the sun dried tomatoes-blended then added the spices and olive oil with garlic and blended.
- I then pulse blended the ingredients until it was the consistency I wanted.
- I then poured in the remaining tomatoes and pulse blended briefly again.
Rinse the Konjac noodles well

Blend all ingredients...or as I did due to the size of my food processor...blend tomatoes
After removing half the tomatoes for more room, I blending the red peppers then added in the organic sun dried tomatoes that were packaged in extra virgin olive oil
Add all the spices- sweet basil, Oregano and Himalayan salt
And your marinara sauce is complete!
Serve your rinsed konjac noodles onto a plate
Top it with the marinara sauce...
Mix and eat! It was delicious! I could smell how yummy it was once I blended in all the herbs. The konjac noodles are definitely something new to me...they have no taste of their own, pretty much a texture and base to eat the sauce with (but pack such a nutritious punch with fiber and zero calories). They have a rubbery, el dente pasta texture to them. You can read my blog about the Konjac posted yesterday for more information on them.
This is definitely a meal I will make over and over again, experimenting with added ingredients such as mushrooms, avocado, lemon juice, more spices etc. I also look forward to trying it with cucumber or zucchini pasta.
