Quick Gluten Free Lunch: Fresh Zucchini Marinara

Ever since I had the Garden Lites Zucchini Marinara for lunch last week, I could not get the flavors out of my mind! And even though I don’t have a veggie spiraler, I decided it didn’t matter. Zucchini is zucchini, no matter what shape it’s in!

This is a quick lunch, and it’s absolutely delicious!

While I’m waiting for my oatmeal to cook in the morning, I slice the ends off of a zucchini, and then slice it in half. Those halves, get cut in to crescents.

In a bowl go the crescents, and then they are tossed with olive oil and steak seasoning to coat.

Spread in a single layer onto a baking sheet, and then bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until the zooks are soft and beginning to brown.

Then in a bowl, or your lunch container, add in marinara sauce and your cooked zucchini. I love this marinara the most:

Eat immediately or pack for lunch. Reheat before eating if you pack it, still so good!! LOVE it! You’ve made your lunch while you ate your breakfast! Fast and Easy.

PLUS, we all know that a few zucchinis are WAY CHEAPER than a bag of gluten free noodles!
