Vegetable Party Spaghetti with Warm Garlic Thyme Olive Oil

Tags:

Dinner

It’s National Spaghetti Day!  I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Barilla Pasta today to celebrate spaghetti and to offer a fun Giveaway.

A new year generally calls for healthier eating right?  I’ve developed a recipe made with Barilla Whole Grain Spaghetti chock-full of vegetables drizzled in a warm garlic thyme olive oil.  This one is colorful and full of flavor.

Let’s take a look at how we make this.

Here’s your ingredient line-up.

Barilla Whole Grain Spaghetti is a great way to incorporate healthier eating for your family.

Place your spaghetti into a nice big pot of boiling water and cook for about 7 minutes.

It should be nice and al dente.

Here come the veggies.  Let’s start with some onions.

Zucchini and yellow squash.

Red bell pepper.

Add it all to the pot and cook for a good 5 minutes.

Add a lovely yellow bell pepper.

Add some white sliced mushrooms and garlic.

Some chopped spinach.

Add your cooked spaghetti back to the pot.

Add your cooked vegetables to the spaghetti.

Season with salt and pepper.

Heat the olive oil, garlic and thyme into a saucepan over medium heat until hot.

Pour the warm oil over the spaghetti and stir.

 

Enjoy!

    My favorite spaghetti is with roasted tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and red pepper flakes. It’s basically the topping for bruschetta, but mixed in with spaghetti instead of on top of bread. Yum!

    Another spaghetti recipe I make: Zucchini Spaghetti

    9 oz linguine or spaghetti
    4 cup shredded zucchini (about 3 medium, I sometimes use yellow squash)
    4 tsp olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced (I like garlic so I use 5)
    1/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt or sour cream (we prefer sour cream)
    3/4 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
    3/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper

    1. Cook linguine according to directions. IN a sieve or colander drain the zucchini, squeezing to remove excess liquid. I also put the zucchini in a cheesecloth and wring it out to remove all of the liquid.
    2. In large nonstick skillet, sautee zucchini in oil for 2 min, add garlic, sautee 1-2 min longer or until zucchini is tender. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the yogurt(sour cream), cheese, salt and papper. Drain pasta; add to zucchini mix and toss to coat.

    One of my favorites is Putanesca, and it’s so easy – sauteed garlic and anchovies, capers, olives and tomatoes. Quick and delicious – all from the pantry!
