This delicious recipe for two is packed with cheesy-deliciousness and important vitamins to protect your immune system this winter!
Today’s stormy-weather has been so beautiful.
The area surrounding our house has open skies for miles, so we had a fantastic view of the heavy rain, thick grey clouds and lightening. You can see so much of the sky that the wind patterns twisting and turning the rain can be seen all around. It was magical.
This has kept us indoors to keep warm, so we have been cuddling, cleaning, and decorating for the holidays!! I love being able to do the work I do, because time can be taken to expand my culinary skills and play with our favorite foods.
Today we were feeling something cozy, and the usual meals have been made about ten times already. So I peeked around the kitchen looking for a starch, cheese selection, and spices that sounded yummy. I came up with something so friggin’ good, that I had to share!
This recipe is filling, flavorful, and healing! Packed with vitamins and minerals that effectively protect against cold season; making this a wonderful family option!
8 oz. Spaghetti Pasta
1 Can Crushed Tomato
1 Can Diced Tomato
1/3 Onion, Diced
1-2 Clove Garlic
1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup Calabrese Cheese
1/4 cup Asiago
1/4 cup Parmesan
1/2 Sprig Fresh Rosemary-Chopped
1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp. Parsley
Step 1: Bring a few cups of water to a boil, and add pasta to cook for 8-10 minutes. Once they are soft, drain completely and set to the side!
Step 2: Set your pan of choice onto stove, and turn onto medium heat. Julienne the onion, mice the garlic, and add both to the pan with a tablespoon of oil. (We use coconut for the healing properties and light flavor) Fry the vegetables until golden- the onion should become slightly transparent at that point. Be careful not to burn the garlic here, as that flavor will stick to the dish like crazy.
Step 3: Add the can of tomatoes and spices at this point; let this sear for about 2 minutes to allow the tomato skins to break down.
Step 4: Now add the can of crushed tomato, or if you prefer- a can of tomato sauce. Stir the mixture and sauce together completely, and let this simmer for about 3 minutes. This will bring the sauce to the proper temperature for the next step!
Step 5: The sauce will start to bubble a bit- a light simmer is okay but be sure not to boil the sauce, as it will burn to the sides. Once it is steaming hot you can turn the stove down to med-low and add the cheesy goodness. Continue stirring until all of the cheeses are completely melted, because they can stick to the pan very easily.
Once done, you have a pot of deliciousness that looks like this:
Step 6: Add the cooked, drained pasta right to the pan and fold the noodles gently into the sauce! If you stir like a mad-man it will splash all over the place.
Add cheese on-top of the bowl and Voila! Beautiful vegetarian-cuisine right in your own home!
This dish is seriously so yummy that even our omnivore friends gobble this pasta up, and typically go in for seconds.
