Simple Spaghetti

This is a very simple recipe.  I don’t know about your family, but mine gets tired of the same old spaghetti all the time.  Noodles with hamburger meant and canned sauce.  This recipe lets you get some fresh ingredients and depending on the ingredients you use, it can be low fat and low cholesterol.  

 

You will need spaghetti noodles (whole wheat or whole grain if you want it healthier), about 5 roma tomatoes, red onion, low fat grated Parmesan cheese, basil (fresh or dried) and low fat house Italian dressing.

Start by putting a large pot of water on to boil.  When it boils, add your spaghetti noodles.

While the spaghetti is cooking, dice up the tomatoes and some of the onion.  You will need about 2 tablespoons of the onion.  Add those to the bowl along with 1/2 cup House Italian dressing, a teaspoon of basil, and about 1/2 cup of the shredded Parmesan. Mix it up well.

Once the spaghetti is done, drain the water from it and put it back into the pot.  Add the tomato mixture and mix it well.  That’s it.  It’s quick, it’s simple, and it’s a very refreshing change to the same ole spaghetti.  Enjoy!
