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!

    Oh, my goodness this looks awesome and just might become a new favorite. We love whole wheat spaghetti with loads of roasted veggies added to it, topped with just a dusting of fresh grated parmesan.

    One of my favorite healthy pastas is the miracle mac & cheese from Budget Bytes! It has half the cheese of other recipes I’ve used, and NO butter or flour. I make it with whole wheat pasta (actually I often use Barilla, love it!), fat-free milk, and reduced-fat cheese, sometimes adding broccoli, and it still turns out AWESOME and decadent! Yummmm.

    Another one of my favorite healthy spaghettis is simple: whole-wheat or whole-grain spaghetti with roma tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil, olive oil & parmesan (or fresh mozzarella as a treat). Yum!!! :)

    My last favorite way to eat pasta is, well… plain!! I honestly have a place in my heart for plain noodles, without any toppings. I used to eat it like this ALL the time as a picky eater child… so I still love it! Whole-wheat or whole-grain pasta adds the perfect nuttiness to this method.
