What to Serve With a Pasta Sauce?

Hold on you spaghetti lovers out there! I get it, we all love pasta. But with our pre – agrarian 6 weeks still 2 weeks from ending, I am still searching for a filling and nutritious pasta substitute. The non carb noodles did not come up to scratch! They were overpriced and tasteless, even fried in butter with salt, pepper and garlic! Though if consumed just boiled, there was a slight gag reflex. Not pleasant at all.

Butter sautéed Savoy cabbage was a definite winner, alongside steamed, finely chopped broccoli or cauliflower rice.

This lunchtime the children enjoyed their regular spaghetti with Dadda’s home made pasta sauce and Daddy and Dadda enjoyed a medley of peppers, courgette, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes, stir fried with garlic butter and seasoning. Filling, yet carb free. Of course we all enjoyed a snowstorm of Parmesan cheese.

Aaliyah’s spaghetti skills have improved vastly. Only Thor and Caleb’s bright orange faces needed tending with copious amounts of baby wipes! Their two noses, oozing with snot did not make easy work of it!
