The Huffman Household is a fairly healthy one. However, a few days passed this week and I realized I hadn’t eaten a SINGLE vegetable. I wanted to find a recipe that was loaded with veggies (other than broccoli) and I found this!

Here’s what you need:

1 box whole grain spaghetti

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 cup finely diced white onion

2 cups sliced zucchini

2 cups yellow squash

1 cup red bell pepper

1 cup yellow bell pepper

1 cup green bell pepper

3 tablespoons minced garlic

2 cups sliced white mushrooms

3 cups baby spinach, chopped

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon minced garlic

2 tablespoons fresh minced thyme

 

First, cook spaghetti, drain, and set aside.

Chop all the veggies (this is super time-consuming). Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large (I’m talking HUMONGOUS) skillet over medium heat. Sauté all veggies about 5 minutes.

Pour veggies into a large pot (or bowl) with the spaghetti noodles, while seasoning with salt and pepper.

Heat 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add in garlic and thyme and cook for about 3 minutes. Pour the oil over spaghetti and veggies, stirring.

Then serve!

This was pretty good! I mean, I think it needed a little something else, like chicken or shrimp. But, it was a tasty, healthy dish! I think if I make it again, I’ll forgo the bell peppers. They weren’t my favorite. Other than that, it was great!
