National Spaghetti Day!!!!!

This morning I woke up and had no idea what I was planning to have for dinner but then while I took a study break; I checked out Facebook and saw that Janetha posted that today was National Spaghetti Day!!!! I am all about celebrating a National Holiday and HELLO a holiday that promotes consuming carbs???? WIN WIN!

I knew that I didn’t want to have boring Spaghetti so I decided to jazz it up and make…

Cheesy Baked Spaghetti with Onions and Mushrooms

First I boiled some Whole Grain Pasta

While the Pasta cooked, I sautéed Onions and Mushrooms

After the spaghetti was done, I mixed it with a little bit of light butter and Part Skim Parmesan Cheese

P1040130

I then layered it in a small casserole pan

I then spread the Mushrooms and Onions over the Spaghetti

P1040135

And then added Marinara Sauce and some more Parmesan Cheese

P1040136

I used this Marinara sauce

P1040119

I then added Part Skim Mozzarella and 2% Cheddar Cheese and some more Marinara Sauce

P1040138

I baked it at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and din din was served!!!!

  9. I love the new look of your blog! It's very professional, yet fun.

    So I had no idea it was national Spaghetti day yesterday, darn it! Oh well, I am not a huge spaghetti fan now that I can't eat wheat, but this recipe sounds deeeelicious! There are some decent wheat-free pastas out there, so I'll have to give this a try sometime.
