Recipe of the Day

As I mention before, Timm is doing this detox program, and because of that is on a strict diet. So, i have been trying to adjust recipes to make interesting dinners for us. Last night I made this vegetarian pasta and it turned out pretty good. I came up with it on my own, so amounts are a bit shady. I would make it to your own taste.

"Almost" Spaghetti:


1 package (8oz) Rice pasta
2 cans organic tomato sauce
1/2 cup lentils
3/4 cup water
1-2 cups diced zucchini (mine was straight out of the freezer so it was already soft, if yours is fresh you might want to saute it first to soften it.)
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
Italian seasining
garlic powder
red pepper flakes


In a pot, combine tomato sauce, zucchini, and herbs and spices (to taste). Begin to cook over med-low heat. In a seperate pan saute onion and garlic in a little olive oil until softened. Add onion/garlic, lentils, and water to tomato sauce. Bring all to a boil then put the lid on and simmer on low for 25 minutes. Meanwhile, cook pasta to package directions. As the sauce cooks, continue to taste it and adjust seasonings to taste, there is no absolute science to this, just do what you like. When all is done, serve sauce over pasta and enjoy. For being all organic (veggies were out of our garden) and vegetarian, and gluten free! It was very yummy.
