I'm all about making a recipe as quick and easy as it can get and when I can make it in one skillet, pot or pan - Booyah, it's a winner!
I remember my mom making homemade spaghetti sauce and cooking it for HOURS and smelling it all day until my appetite was voracious and I could have inhaled the whole pot of spaghetti before it hit the plate.
However, that's never been me.
I've always been a jar of spaghetti sauce kinda gal. The bad thing is it's VERY high in sodium. I had been using a low sodium version that I found but the sodium count was still a lot higher than I'd like.
In steps Thrive Tomato Powder! It's perfect! Low in sodium and super versatile. You can make it into spaghetti sauce, tomato paste, tomato sauce, tomato juice, as a topping, tomato soup, pizza sauce, salad dressing...the list goes on and on! Thrive Life does carry tomato sauce too but it's just a little higher sodium count.
Chicken and Veggie Spaghetti
About a quarter diameter of Angel Hair pasta (dry) If you want a larger serving, make more pasta.
1/2 cup Thrive chopped chicken
1/4 cup Thrive tomato dices
1/4 cup Thrive asparagus
1/4 cup Thrive mushrooms
1/4 cup Thrive broccoli
1/4 cup Thrive red bell peppers
1/4 cup Thrive green beans
1/4 cup Thrive tomato powder
1/4 cup Thrive mozzarella cheese
1/8 cup Thrive chopped onions
1 teaspoon Thrive Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon Thrive parsley (garnish)
1. In your pot/skillet, boil about 3 cups water. Once boiling, break Angel Hair pasta into 4 and cook until al dente. Once done, drain and add back to pot.
2. In a separate bowl, add 1/4 cup Thrive tomato powder to 1 cup water and Italian Seasoning and whisk together. Add to skillet and stir.
3. Add chopped chicken, chopped onions, tomato dices, asparagus, mushrooms, broccoli, red peppers, green beans, and 2 cups of water. Cook on medium heat, covered, for about 8 minutes. Test the broccoli or asparagus to make sure it's refreshed.
4. Mix in 1/4 cup Thrive mozzarella cheese.
5. Serve and top with Thrive parsley. You can also top with more mozzarella cheese because we all love that ooey gooey cheesy goodness!
Serves 2 but if you want larger servings, add more pasta. Most of our recipes will show the serves 2 option and you can double or triple as needed. I especially like to do this the first time I make a recipe so we can critique it and see if something should be changed. Another thing I love about Thrive foods is that you can tweak anything and not have to be concerned that a portion will go to waste because you're just scooping it out of a can. The beauty of freeze-dried foods!
The recipe will take you under 20 minutes. I spent the most time waiting for the water to boil and after that...toss, toss, toss and cook! No chopping required.
