When I saw this recipe, I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. Strawberry pasta?? Are you kidding me? Sign me up.
When I saw this gorgeousness, I knew that I had to make it.
Olenko is originally from Poland, and she told me that Strawberry pasta is a traditional Polish dish (I had never heard of it before). Traditionally, the strawberry sauce is served warm over wheat noodles, but this recipe is her raw spin on the original.
This recipe can be enjoyed as a light summer meal or even as a dessert! I think it’s another fun and interesting way to eat more vegetables. I would have never thought to eat zucchini noodles with a sweet sauce, but it actually works!
By the way, strawberries are great during pregnancy. Let’s keep getting those anti-oxidants daily babes!

If you are into the beauty of foods and healthy, natural recipes, then you are definitely going to want to have this book. There is no other book on the market that will inspire you more to eat more fruits and vegetables! It is absolutely stunning and the recipes are kid-freindly! I will be making some of Olenko’s recipes for my baby girl one of these days.
I hope you all have a great Friday evening! Did you see my previous post on my upcoming cooking class? I am SO excited about it.
