Delicious Impromptu Spaghetti Dinner Recipe!

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

-Spaghetti noodles

-2 cloves of garlic chopped

-1/3 of a red onion chopped

-Baby portabella mushrooms chopped

-Zucchini 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!
