A Change In Thinking

Vegetables first.  Pasta second.


I could never go without pasta.  But when I make a pasta dish it’s never without a pile of veggies.  Instead of spaghetti with a side salad, I make veggies the star!

This dish turned out to be a perfect light summer meal!


  • Equal parts whole wheat and white spaghetti
  • Pile of green beans equal to spaghetti
  • Heap of tomatoes just about as large
  • 1/4 cup pesto (I used my first jar of freezer pesto)
  • 3/4 cup pasta water
  • Parmesan cheese

Stir fry green beans and tomatoes.  Mix with drained pasta.  Toss with pesto and pasta water.  Top with cheese.


How do you do pasta?

    My all-time favorite pasta dish is this Whole Wheat Spaghetti with lemon, basil and salmon. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/whole-wheat-spaghetti-with-lemon-basil-and-salmon-recipe/index.html

    Seriously awesome! But…I JUST tried eggplant Parmesan for the first time last night…and it ROCKED!
