I have not written a recipe in a while, so I decided that today is all about a healthy recipe. My new years 2012 resolution is to get more healthy, eat well, have regular physical activity and have a well-balanced diet. Eat everything of the food groups, but everything has its limits. Now today, I’d like to start with Spinach, Mushroom, Red Onion Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Mushroom Sauce.
Salt (Mushroom Sauce will have Salt in it, but just add a little bit more into it)
10-15 Mushrooms(Regular and cutting them until each mushroom becomes 4 Pieces),
2 Red Onions Chopped,
Fresh Bagged Spinach — One or Two Bags
Whole Wheat Pasta — 750 g or 900 g —– Serves 3-5 people.
Mushroom Soup Sauce — 1-2 cans
To Prepare the Sauce: Remember to wash the spinach, then wash the mushrooms and the onion before chopping.
you put olive oil into the Spaghetti Sauce Pan — make sure its deep enough to then put the whole wheat spaghetti to mix together….
Put in the chopped red onions to cook, but do not overcook the red onions as it will lose its colour…. cook on medium heat.
then quickly put in the mushrooms after the onions cook just a bit
then put in the basil, a dash of salt and Oregano into the pan and start mixing….
then after without chopping the spinach, just put it all into the pan and it will shrink in size. you do not need to cut the spinach.
then your done….. make sure the onions are still red to make it look good and the nutrients from the onions will not go away….
Then you will put in the Mushroom sauce and let it all cook until warm to hot….
To Prepare the Whole Wheat Spaghetti
In a pasta pot put water, but just enough and keep an eye on it so it wont overflow when it boils… add salt and olive oil into the water.
after the water has completely boiled put in the whole wheat spaghetti and let it cook for 10 minutes to 12 minutes MAXIMUM until its al dente. don’t overcook spaghetti or any type of pastas.
Remember to mix the pasta in the water instantly after putting it in and keep mixing the whole wheat spaghetti so it wont stick together every 3 minutes until its cooked
Then you drain the water from the spaghetti and you mix in the spaghetti with the sauce and your done…
—— Eat Immediately. You can put Parmesan cheese on top or feta cheese, but make sure the feta cheese is not so salty… there are different types of feta you can buy from a specialty grocery store or a cheese factory or something.
Then your done!
I enjoy learning new recipes, but many of us cooks appreciate photographs to go with them so that we know what the completed meal should look like. Could you please start taking pictures and publishing them? Thanks 🙂
Easy and quick. Perfect after a day of exploring. Thanks.
I believe I will give this one a go. Have a few days off from work, weather is cold and wet. Looks to be a very enjoyable recipe.(thanks for the ‘hint’ about feta cheese)..&thanks for sharing…McTell.
