How to cook Spaghetti |A Simple Healthy Spaghetti Recipe

Hi, I’m Oppy. I’d be sharing with you a simple healthy spaghetti recipe I learnt recently. I learned this method of cooking spaghetti for Sisiyemmie.

Spaghetti is the most popular form of pasta. However, it is not one of the healthiest food because it is packed with carbs. Which makes it is not suitable for a low carb diet.

The carb content in spaghetti can be adjusted by adding various types of vegetables of choice.

If you are looking for a way to cut down carb from your meal or looking for ways to enhance your pasta. Then, this healthy spaghetti recipe is for you!

This recipe has a delicious mix of green vegetables, protein, and the nutrients are well balanced out. The other nutrients balance the carb content in the spaghetti.

Craving for pasta while being on a weight loss journey is so exhausting. However, by infusing a lot of veggies you can still satisfy your pasta cravings.

This specific healthy spaghetti recipe gives me so much joy because it is very easy and inexpensive to put together.

I’m quick to jump on this recipe because the whole cooking process takes proximately 30mins.

I love cooking but staying in the kitchen for a long period is what I don’t like, lol. I love fast, healthy, and comfort foods.

This recipe requires only 5 ingredients. Plus the spaghetti sums it up to 6. So yes we have six (6) ingredients in total.

If you haven’t had your spaghetti this way, you are definitely missing out! Yea, you are missing out. I’m saying it again you are missing out!
