Honeybee kitchen: Healthy Pasta

Who doesnt love pasta?!! I make this dish at least once a week and we looove it! You can eat pasta and stay in shape as long as you make it healthy. I purchased all my ingredients from Trader Joes…

The key to a healthy pasta is VEGGIES VEGGIES VEGGIES. I literally throw in every type of vegetable we have in our fridge. This week I had three bells peppers, onions, garlic cloves, and mushrooms. By adding tons of veggies you fill up faster on eating more of the veggies than you would pasta.Heat two table spoons of Olive oil (or Canola oil) and saute your veggies until soft.

Start boiling your noodles. I use Organic noodles from Trader Joes and Organic pasta Sauce also from Trader Joes.I know its not always realistic to buy everything organic. My rule of thumb is if you cant pronounce the ingredients…it doesnt belong in your cupboard. When choosing a sauce be sure to check the calorie and sugar content. The sauce i use has 45 calories and 4grams of sugar ( per half cup) which is awesome! Some are loaded with sugar so be sure to check!

Not all meat is created equal! I use 94% lean ground beef to keep my pasta super healthy! Ive used ground turkey in the past but you have to be careful because some have more fat than beef! I love using this 94% lean beef because it tastes just as good without the added fat and calories! Now just add your meat with your veggies until cooked. Season to taste with sea salt and ground pepper. Then pour in your sauce…simmer for 5 minutes

I sprinkles fresh basil and Parmesan shavings on top and you’re done!
