"This yields 2 vegetable servings, .75 dairy servings, the Weight Watchers daily oil requirement, and 34g whole grains. Its 7 points can be lowered by reducing the amount of spaghetti, oil, or cheese (or type of cheese) used. It is all Core except for the cheese. It was adapted from "Bruschetta-Style Thin Spaghetti" on the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest whole wheat thin spaghetti package."

  1. 3 Stars, missing quantities of garlic and herbs, plus recipe should state how long the green peppers should be sauteed, or how crunchy or soft they should get. By email the chef said to use 1/8 teaspoon of each herb; I used 1 small clove garlic, minced, and added 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes because I couldn't stop myself. This is a simple yet tasty stirfry of chopped tomatoes and sliced green peppers. I recommend serving as a side dish to a beige looking protein; just pile the tomatoes and green peppers on top of the spaghetti to concentrate the color accents. Or stirfry some cubed chicken with the green peppers. Made for PAC Spring 2008.


I was raised on southern cooking, but over the past few years, I have been looking for more healthy ways to eat. As a result, some of my recipes are healthy and some aren't. <br> <br>I am usually just cooking for myself, so I am especially interested in recipes that can be made for single servings or easily refrigerated/frozen for later. <br> <br>I am a teacher, and on weekends I try to make something that I can take for lunch the following week (something that won't be boring by Friday!) so that I can just grab it and go each weekday morning. <br> <br><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <br><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <br><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
