07 Aug Mom’s Spaghetti on Edamame Pasta & Mixed Salad

Prepare edamame pasta – rinse and drain (found with pasta at the grocery store)
You can also use zoodles (zucchini noodles) I will noodle the zucchini, then cut the looong noodles and run them under hot water in a strainer in the sink

Sauce:
Brown ground turkey or low fat ground beef
Drain fat, wipe pan
Add back meat, add sauce (I use Paul Newman’s Marinara)
Bring to boil, add seasonings, then simmer for up to 4 hours:
Bay leaf
Dried mustard
Ground oregano
Basil
Couple big splashes of Tabasco
Couple big splashes of Worcestershire Sauce
Celery salt
Salt and pepper

Green salad:
You can tear your salad from a head of lettuce, or you can buy it in a bag
Add as many vegetables as possible:
Carrots
Bell pepper
Celery
Radish
Cherry or regular tomatoes
2 Hard boiled eggs
*My mom taught me to make a salad in a much bigger bowl than the salad so you can toss vigorously without making a mess!

Dressings:
Any Newman’s Low-fat dressing
OR
Salt and pepper and Mrs Dash the salad, then
Add olive oil and your choice of vinegar (I like red wine, rice, or balsamic)

*Your protein portion should be about a palm size, so remember that when serving up.
Eat your vegetables/salad with reckless abandon! 🙂

You Are What You Eat!
TRACI 🙂
