Great taste and low in calories. Just add a clove of garlic to the olive oil before cooking onions zucchini and mushrooms. Use seasonings without measurements, taste the sauce until you like it. And don’t skip on the fresh parmesan it gives the pasta a lot of flavor.


This went a long way in helping me use up ingredients that were either opened or about to go bad. At first, I thought this called for way too much seasoning. I read through the reviews and saw where some had stated this was bland, so I decided to stick to the recipe. Much to my surprise, it was bland! But, the only thing it needed was a little salt to perk it up.


I made this for dinner last night and everyone liked it. I did change it a little. I added some lean ground turkey that I sauteed in 1 Tbsp. of olive oil. We eat extremely low fat for my daughter. I then cut the Italian seasoning to 1/2 tsp. and the pepper to about 1/4 tsp. I added 1/2 tsp. of basil and cut the sugar to about 1/2 Tbsp. Then I had a brain fart and instead of 6 oz of spaghetti I cooked 16 oz. It was still very good. Then tonight, since I had so much left over :) I heated it up and added about 1 lb of steamed, crispy asparagus that I cut up and mixed in. Oh YUM. It was as good if not better tonight. I got lots of positive comments.
