Here is a look at some of the healthier options that are out there. Like to always have a couple of shapes on hand especially for creating all types of healthy pasta recipes from scratch. This Garlic Spaghetti with Red Bell Pepper Sauce, Spaghetti With Mushroom Sauce, and Stoneware Vegetarian Alfredo sauce are two of my favorites.
Short spaghetti is also ideal for Sun Dried Tomato Pasta or Caprese Chicken Pasta., and short rice is great for serving with risotto. Long noodles such as linguine are great for serving with garlic carpaccio.
Non-Fat Mozzarella And Romano
In the category of creamy sauces, I love to use Non-fat Mozzarella and Romano. For my other healthy pasta recipes, I always include broccoli florets in the mix and bake them. Typically I do not bake these long noodles, but sometimes I do. If you find that broccoli florets are a bit too tough on the stomach, there are other options like using other vegetables in the sauce instead.
As far as healthy pasta recipes go, anyone who likes shrimp will love this recipe for Five Finger Food Pizza. The sauce is made with garlic, olive oil, tomato sauce, nutritional yeast, and cheddar cheese. All of the ingredients work to get you a delicious, light, and healthy pasta dish. In addition to the shrimp, there are bell pepper strips and some spinach on the bottom to help it stick together better. If you do not like spinach, you can use any other veggies instead.
For dessert, it is time to switch things up again and give both spaghetti and linguine a try. Instead of having just one or the other type of meal, why not combine them for a healthy pasta recipe midweek treat? Instead of having a sweet and sour flavor combination in your pasta, you can add a zesty flavor for your dessert. In this case, you can use fresh strawberries in place of traditional sour cream. In addition, you could also substitute skim milk for whole milk, or semi-skim milk for cream.
For another healthy pasta recipe idea, check out seafood pastas. There are so many different seafood pastas out there, it is easy to create a healthy pasta salad. In this case, you want to use seafood pasta, such as linguine. To make a healthier version of this pasta, I would replace the mayonnaise with a reduced-fat mayonnaise. For the spices, I would use Italian seasoning and Tabasco sauce, which have a healthy kick.
When it comes to dinner, you can choose to serve either a salad or a vegetable dish. You can always find healthy pasta recipes for these two dishes. For a healthy pasta recipe for a salad, you will want to use a spinach or squash head, cut into pieces, along with some lettuce leaves, bell pepper and maybe a tomato or two, along with olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice.
For shrimp pastas, you will want to prepare the pasta dough and then cut the shrimp into small pieces. Then, just place the pieces into your pasta machine and follow the machine’s instructions on the package.
For spaghetti, you will want to add broccoli florets and garlic to the boiling water, along with the parmesan cheese. When your noodles are done, add half of the chopped zucchini to the boiling water and simmer for about two minutes, until the veggies are soft and the shrimp pasta is done.
