This recipe comes from Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes, the companion book to Brain Saver.

Brain Saver unveils the why behind more than 100 brain- and nervous system–related symptoms, diseases, and disorders; Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes reveals the truth about how to heal in even more detail (including cleanses, recipes, supplement protocols, and so much more).

Zucchini Noodles With Marinara Sauce


  • ¼ cup finely chopped yellow onion or shallot
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 lbs fresh plum or cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped, or 2 cups jarred crushed or diced tomatoes
  • 2 tsps dried oregano
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup loosely packed basil leaves
  • 2 zucchinis, spiralized


Place a ceramic nonstick pot on medium-high heat. Add the onion or shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Add a bit of water if needed to prevent sticking.

Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft, about 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until the paste begins to caramelize.

Add the tomatoes, dried oregano, and red pepper flakes. Stir until evenly mixed. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are soft, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for a further 10 minutes until the sauce is thick. If using jarred tomatoes, then you can reduce the overall cooking time by half.

Transfer the sauce to a blender or food processor, add the basil leaves, and pulse a few times until you get a chunky sauce. Set aside.

Place a ceramic nonstick frying pan on medium-high heat and add the spiralized zucchini. Sauté while tossing the noodles with tongs until al dente, 2 to 3 minutes.

Divide noodles between two bowls and top with the sauce. Garnish with a bit of basil and serve immediately.


  • Look for a tomato paste that contains only tomatoes and no other ingredients, such as salt or citric acid.
  • A good quality jarred fat-free marinara sauce without citric acid, oil, preservatives, natural flavors, or other problematic ingredients can be used when you don’t have time to make your own.
