Yummy recipe for Whole Wheat (or Protein Plus) Pasta
This is a fresh-tasting pasta dish made with tomatos and spinach (If you don’t tell the kids about the spinach, they will hardly notice).
I box Whole Wheat Penne Pasta (or two, depending on family size)
1 tbsp. Coconut oil
2 c. Baby spinach
2-3 Fresh tomatoes (chopped)
1 Clove garlic
A little fresh basil (if you have it) dried basil is fine otherwise
(Approx. 1 tbls.)
1 tsp.olive oil
Salt and pepper
Parmesan cheese (optional)
Cook the pasta al dente. Drain. While pasta is cooking, heat coconut oil (olive oil works, too) in skillet and add spinach tomato, garlic, and a little basil. Saute for a few minutes. Add vegetables and oil mixture to pasta and toss with olive oil and salt and pepper. Add parmesan to taste.
Serve with salad and fresh bread (whole wheat).
I love this recipe because it takes about as long to make as it takes to cook the pasta. It tastes fresh and is a welcome change from jarred spaghetti sauce. And it is hard to mess it up!
