    xpnsve's Note:

    This robust, satisfying sauce is wonderful on whole-wheat pasta. It's also fabulous spooned over a baked potato, couscous or barley. Add a delicious Parmesan-infused crumb topping to spaghetti recipes: Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a small nonstick skillet. Add 1/3 cup of coarse whole-wheat bread crumbs. Cook on high heat for 1 minute, shaking skillet constantly, until crumbs are aromatic and slightly browned. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese and shake well to coat. Remove from heat and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of crumbs over each dish just before serving. (Adds 1 POINTS value per serving.)

      I followed the recipe exactly and really enjoyed it. Was a little nervous about adding the carrots but found it to be rather nice. While wheat spaghetti is not my favorite either - if not overcooked it's OK and we all know much healther. As I'm alone most of the time, I divided this into 1 serving portions and froze so I can take out whenever I need a quick dinner - and only 5 points. Thanks helluvawoman for a very nice recipe that was easy to put together.

      This is a great sauce. Nice, simple with really clean flavors. I didn't change a thing. I did, however add a little parmesan cheese to the top.
