Hands Down, Alissa's marinara sauce! It is SOOOOO GOOD! Can't give you the recipe tho, you gotta get it from the book! :)
I either use a sundried tomato sauce or gus' pesto (can be found in Alissa's book)

I whip up a spaghetti or marinara sauce (make it different every time; don't really measure with the sauce)
I also love making a sort of asian noodles dish (think and sliced lengthwise) by adding peppers (red, yellow, green), red onions, a little choped green onions, carrots, and if I have other veggies.. I throw in some spices like cayenne pepper and also add a little bit of the pink sea salt; I mix it all together and add olive oil and usually I can put this in a ziploc bag and do some housework for a few hours or something and it "marinates" and softens like noodles. If I'm pressed for time; I can put this in a bowl of warm water while for about an hour (or the dehydrator I guess) or probably less than an hour...it softens the veggies and I really feel as if I'm having an Asian noodle experience.
Ooops..I forgot the Namu Shoyu/Braggs (braggs not raw i don't think)..this is what really sets of the flavor of the dish...just a few shakes is all it takes

Ok this is where it pays OR NOT to be a chef.
I love pesto and used it allot in sad diets. But I though about it and I can make a recipe raw off the top of my head so here it goes.
NOTHING MEASURED go buy taste as a chef I must repeat what was DRILLED in my head from my head chefs.
TASTE THE FOOD ALL THE TIME AFTER ADDING ANY THING!
So that said I will give you a good base of stuff to put in a food processor.
Hand full of baby spinach
Arugula - Half the amount of spinach
Pine nuts-cover the top of the stuff in there with them
Walnuts - bout 1 fourth of the amount of pine nuts
Sea salt to taste
Pinch (ONLY PINCH) nutmeg or leave it out
EVOO put a bit in then process well then ad more till you get the thickness you want.
OPTION is 1 clove of garlic
I FORGOT THE BASIL (bout 5 leafs)!!!!!! thanks AGAIN to beckla!

Pesto, tomatoes, fresh basil...
My artichoke/mayo sauce...
The other night I made a raw "cacio e pepe" - used Alissa's parmesean cheese, some fresh ground black pepper, and some spice. Delic.
