Pasta Marinara w/ Zucchini Noodles & Nut ‘Feta’ {Live Food, Vegan}

Hey, beautiful!

My oh my. First of all, yes, it’s been a while since I posted a recipe. Second, this is an entree I’ve been enthusiastic about sharing for a long time.

Considering it’s 4 AM where I’m at, it’s raining, and I can’t sleep, apparently it’s the perfect time to post it.

In case you’re wondering, this recipe will be one of the entrees featured in my upcoming Bloom for Life cookbook – available in eBook and print! I’m so excited for that project to be wrapped up and for the resource to be available for you, so keep an eye out for that!

Basically, there’s not much to share. Life is just flitting by – as it does for all of us, and I’m spending a lot of time outdoors and in the company of good-humored friends and family. What else could one ask for when they’re back in the United States and enjoying the summer?

Keep an eye out for more info on the recipe book, and please subscribe to the newsletter (and receive a FREE gift in the process) to be informed when the book is totally ready for you to get your hands on.

Enjoy this artistic and delicious dish!
