Make Classic Fantastic.... Spaghetti
Spaghetti is that quick cook family meal.. fills every one's tummy with out emptying any ones wallet.
I grew up hating spaghetti never really liking the red sauce. It was an over cooked meal served at every event or bad Monday dinner. Now though I find myself more accustomed to a red sauce although you'll never see me order it at a restaurant. But for home I make spaghetti with out the sauce that comes in the jar and serve it in a more authentic but just as easy way..
Use canned roasted tomatoes instead of the traditional red sauce in a jar. It is texturally more appealing and healthier. Add some basil and garlic for seasoning and throw in some mushrooms for good taste. To serve in a more luxurious way use crumbled goat cheese on top when served but the traditional Parmesan is always appreciated. This served with a different noodle to change things up and serve with chicken on the side for a healthier Italian meal.
