Zucchini Linguine

Raw zucchini linguine (link to recipe) was a hit at today’s Little Locavore shows!

My wonderful volunteers really got into food preparation. We could have spent the entire half hour on that.  But, then we would not have had the chance to enjoy the Zucchini Baton Relay Race or the Aunty Oxidant & Free Radicals skit.

The kids were very skillful, using “kid” scissors to:

  • snip basil
  • dice strips of zucchini and pattypan squash
  • cut small roma tomatoes in quarters

They also used a potato masher to mash juicy cherry tomatoes for the marinara sauce.

Here’s feedback from Ruth today (also in Comments section) :

Thanks for introducing all kinds of veggies to my girls, Izzy and Vivian. For some reason, the same veg presented by me is not nearly as enticing. Izzy blogged about you and making zucchini linguine.

And a BIG THANK YOU to volunteers Vivian, Izzy, Catherine, Selena, June, JJ, Harper, Madeleine, VJ, Jackson and Caroline!
