Homemade Popcorn

Veggie Spaghetti Recipe: So Easy and Delicious!

veggie spaghetti

My husband’s office is less than a mile from our house so he usually comes home for lunch everyday. We’ve been really busy in the evenings so sometimes I cook at lunch instead of dinner. A couple of weeks ago, I made this amazing spaghetti chock full of fresh veggies I didn’t want to go bad. My son HATES squash, I mean absolutely HATES it. However, when I made this spaghetti he had no idea he was eating squash. In fact, my kids are so used to veggies I don’t think they noticed all the veggies in their spaghetti. If your kids are picky you may want to chop the veggies finely in a food processor or chopper first. Otherwise, they will never know and you can feel good about feeding them a healthy meal. Instead of homemade sauce, I used ALDI’s organic marinara sauce and organic diced tomatoes. Amazing y’all seriously.  [Read more...]
