Helpful hints

  • Top with 1/4 cup delicious Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Sauce from the DaVita.com recipe collection.
  • Substitute refined spaghetti for whole wheat if preferred.
  • Note to dietitians:  This is a great recipe idea to serve at food sampling events. Double the recipe and cook in an electric skillet. Pre-cook/prep the pasta and sauce. Place a basil plant on the table for aroma and to demonstrate use of fresh herbs.
