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!

    In the summer I love to cut up fresh garden tomatoes, basil, olive oil, garlic and salt then leave it in a bowl to macerate for 30 minutes or longer then pour over my hot spaghetti or angel hair pasta. Sprinkle on a few red pepper flakes for added zing! Quick and easy!

    As long as spaghetti isn’t covered in a cream sauce it’s pretty healthy. I like to make a simple sauce with garlic, plum tomatoes, capers, olives, and olive oil just cooked enough to warm everything up. Yum!

    I like pasta with a simple sauce of olive oil and garlic but this addition of thyme sounds intriguing. I will definitely try this next.

    Rebecca says:

    I love using a can of pumpkin in with some veggie sausage and a few vegetables (onion, zucchini, tomatoes) and then baking it slightly for a little cheese to melt. One of the easiest & tastiest spaghetti dishes.
