What’s a mom to do when her family wants spaghetti night but you’re feeling more like Meatless Monday? Make a quick Zucchini Spaghetti with Marinara & Peas of course.
I’m limited on time without making adjustments so when I’m looking for something different than the meal I’m making, quick and easy are two essential requirements.
Our family has been transitioning to a less processed lifestyle for awhile now and have included more meatless meals into our week. If you’re new to this, try starting with a snack or breakfast and go from there. Subscribe Here to receive my free ebook about Avoiding Organic Overwhelm.

I discovered a Spiralizer when I joined a local co-op. They’re great for making a raw version of curly noodles out of zucchini, potatoes, cucumbers, and more.
I found the Oxo Handheld Spiralizer last week and wanted to try it. It’s nice because it fits right in the drawer with my utensils so easy to reach.
I seem to use things more often when I can see them!
This zucchini spaghetti bowl with marinara & peas is simple, delicious, and can be made in less than 5 minutes!

- Frozen Peas
- Boil peas as directed or thaw..
- Drain peas and let them cool.

My girls have made big changes since we began our less processed journey. Although they aren’t excited about ALL of the changes, they try new things and eventually come around to most of them.
My youngest likes her veggie noodles.
