This super easy spaghetti is so delicious and satisfying. It is loaded with vegetables and is ready in no time. It can be on a quick main course menu when entertaining. This spaghetti is cooked using home-made red sauce which makes it even tastier.
It is a balanced meal containing vegetables and whole grain spaghetti which are a great source of fiber, vitamins, carbohydrates etc.
