Veghetti (Veggie Spaghetti)

I created (yes, created!) a healthy meatless spaghetti recipe tonight, and it actually turned out really, really well! The hubby even really liked it. It’s been a struggle to find relatively simple and tasty meatless recipes, so I was so excited that we enjoyed this one so much.

Roasted Green Veggies

My husband and I are trying to be more intentional about eating our veggies. These two recipes have helped! They are super simple, healthy, and tasty. I found both of them on Pinterest.

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz green beans, trimmed (make sure they are dry)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp shredded Parmesan

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum for easy clean-up. Lay green beans out on the baking sheet and drizzle oil over them. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder and toss to evenly coat.

Bake 10 minutes, shake the pan to turn; bake 5 additional minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with grated cheese.

Roasted Asparagus

Ingredients:

  • Same as the roasted green beans, just use asparagus instead.
  • (I didn’t use garlic powder in this recipe.)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Season the asparagus with everything except the cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and add the cheese.
