One cucumber, zucchini or yellow pepper ½ cup of cashews, pine nuts, macadamia nuts or Brazil nuts 1 cup of cherry tomatoes (put ¼ cup aside) 2-3 sun-dried tomatoes (optional) 1 small date, pitted Fresh or dried Italian herbs ¼ teaspoon sea salt ½ tsp Italian seasoning ½ tsp red wine (optional) Handful of pine nuts (garnish)

Put all the sauce ingredients into a blender and blend together until smooth. You can leave it a little chunky if that is what you prefer. If you want a more substantial sauce, then you can add more red wine or more sun dried tomatoes.
To soften the noodles, drizzle a little olive oil on the noodles and set aside before pouring on the sauce.
