Shave the zucchini lengthwise with a vegetable peeler. Do not discard the peel. It's part of the zucchini pasta!
Prepare the sauce: In a blender add the tomato and garlic. Blend for 30 seconds, and add the sun-dried tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, zucchini peels, thyme sprigs, and ground pepper. Add water if needed, depending on how thick or thin you want the sauce.
Top the zucchini with the sauce and garnish with basil (to taste, whole or thinly sliced) and pine nuts.
