We finally bought a vegetable spiralizer and I am so happy that we did! This dinner was delicious! The kids had a fabulous time peeling and spiraling the zucchini and we all had a wonderful time eating it — even my most picky eaters! If you are looking for a a stellar substitution to straight up pasta, wait no longer — here it is! As my kids called them ZOODLES! Enjoy!
Zoodles and Vegetable Quinoa Marinara Sauce
A wonderful substitution to regular pasta, this zucchini pasta recipe is healthy, nutritious vegetarian gluten-free meal.

1 hr 5 min
1 hr 5 min
- 6 large zucchini squash, peeled
- 1 jar organic pasta sauce
- 1/4-1/2 cup of water
- 1 cup dry quinoa, rinsed and drained
- 1 zucchini
- 2-3 carrots, diced
- 1/4 red bell pepper, diced
- 1/4 green bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 cup broccoli florets
- 4 tablespoons kelp granules (optional)
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Wash and peel your zucchini cutting off the ends.
- Set up your spiralizer to the small triangles (if you don't have a spiralizer julienne tiny strips of your zucchini and de-seed) and place the zucchini in and turn that crank!
- Line a cookie sheet with paper towels and spread your zucchini strips across them.
- Place the zucchini in the oven for 30 minutes.
- Remove zucchini noodles and wrap them up in the paper towel and squeeze.
- Add the zoodles to the sauce you will be preparing while they were cooking and sauté an additional 5-15 minutes (depending on how al dente you would like them).
- While zoodles are in the over empty the jar of pasta and add water to desired consistency (remember the quinoa will absorb some liquid) in a medium sauce pan and add 1 cup rinsed and drained dry quinoa and bring to a boil.
- Once at a boil simmer for 10 minutes and chop vegetables.
- Add vegetable and kelp granules to pasta and quinoa and simmer until zoodles are done.
- Add sauce and zoodles to a large sauté pan and cook, stirring continuously (I find using tongs to be helpful) for 5-15 min until the zoodles reach desired consistency.
- Serve zoodles and sauce on their own or over a bed a green (do the bed of greens -- we all need more greens!)

Lisa's expertise and experience in holistic care is second to none. I had come down with pneumonia and I was going on 3 weeks before I set aside the standard antibiotics and tried Lisa's holistic remedies. It was like night and day, I felt better in a matter of 24 hours. Lisa even taught me how to make my own homemade inhaler which helped relieve my aching chest cavity and lungs. I can't recommend Lisa enough, my only regret is not seeking her help sooner, lesson learned! Thanks Lisa :)
