    yum! This looks delicious. I like some wheat pasta with a bit of olive oil, garlic, and thyme. Then I’ll usually add some tuna from protein, and serve it with a side salad of arugula. Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

    I make a veggie spaghetti, too. But I don’t like the taste of chunks of zucchini and yellow squash, so I grate them and carrots and saute them with in olive oil with garlic and herbs.
