I wanted to try out a meatless pasta dish for dinner last night. So I decided to create a yummy recipe! I didn’t really use exact measurements so I’ll try to do the best I can with providing all the info! Check it out!
-Salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes
-Olive oil or vegetable oil
-2 cloves of garlic chopped
-1/3 of a red onion chopped
-Baby portabella mushrooms chopped
-Cherry tomatoes chopped
-Half can of tomato paste
-Half container of Marinara sauce
-Handful of baby spinach chopped
-2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
-Chopped parsley for garnish (optional)
I started out by cooking the spaghetti. As that cooked, I prepared the sauce. I chopped up garlic and red onions and added to a medium sauce pan. In 1 tablespoon of olive oil, I sautéed the garlic and onions for about 1 minute on medium heat.
I chopped mushrooms, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes and added to them to the pan and mixed together with the garlic and onions. I seasoned with salt and pepper and let cook for about 2 minutes.
I added half can of tomato paste and mixed in with the veggies and let simmer for a few mins to let the sauce thicken a bit. Added half can of marinara sauce and mixed all together. I seasoned with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes, covered pan, and let cook for 10 minutes on low heat.
I added about 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream to sauce and stirred in chopped baby spinach and let flavors blend for about 3 minutes. Fold in the cooked spaghetti and that’s it! Time to dig in!
I garnished with parsley and served with Texas toast garlic bread! I was very pleased that my impromptu recipe turned out really delicious!
