Lexi’s Cheesy Pasta Recipe!
- 1/2 cup whole wheat noodles
- 1-2 slices of your favorite cheese (I used swiss)
- 2 tablespoons of milk (i used almond milk)
- spices (I used italian seasoning, chili powder, cumin, dill weed, ground white pepper, cilantro, black pepper, and parmesan cheese.)
- Sliced tomatoes and spinach (or other veggies!)
- Boil your noodles to desired consistency
- Strain noodles and put them back into the pan, and turn the burner on its lowest setting
- Add slice(s) of cheese and milk, stir while the milk evaporates and the cheese melts
- Add desired spices and vegetables
- Let cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Okay, I absolutely loved this. It’s something you can really experiment with too! I want to try it with avocado, different kinds of cheese, and a different spice combination. Let me know how yours turns out! (:
Caramelized onions, asparagus and shrimp pasta! (Taken with instagram)
Edited to add recipe:
1. Cook thinly sliced onions for 20+ minutes on medium low with a little olive oil and garlic
2. Add chopped asparagus, cover and cook on medium until crisp-tender.
3. I used cooked, frozen shrimp which I defrosted and rinsed then threw in.
4. Toss with cooked pasta and 1/4 cup of pasta water! I added a bit more olive oil too.
The water, oil and burnt bits from the onions make a great sauce
Scrape out the spaghetti-like strands from this squash and top with your favorite sauce. It looks and tastes just like the real deal!
Shredded, julienned, or cut into ribbons with a peeler, this low-cal alternative will give you a huge veggie boost when topped with tomato sauce.
These Japanese noodles are packed with fiber and protein and have a nuttier taste than traditional pasta.
Made popular by Hungry Girl. These noodles are primarily made of fiber and contain virtually no fat or calories. They come in a package of liquid and are usually sold in the produce section alongside tofu. The only cooking required is draining the liquid and rinsing them off!
Though it’s not shaped like pasta, this ancient grain can be a great pasta alternative, especially if you are looking to increase your protein — 1 cup has 32 grams!
