Thank you kayelle
Wow, seeing this thread is a blast from the past. Last night I made a dinner that was delicious, healthy, fast, and ALL the ingredients came from TJs.
It's a HIGH FIBER SPAGHETTI NOODLE AND SAUCE
recipe that was inspired by a recipe from Dr. Weil. The noodles taste and cook up just like regular spaghetti even though there are 6 grms fiber to 2 grms of the other. (you don't need salt because the olives and capers are naturally salty). All ingredients are packed with nutrition. Serves 2
2 servings of TJ's High FIBER Spaghetti Noodles (6 grms of fiber per serving)
1 pkg TJ's Fresh High LYCOPENE Tomatoes from Holland (or plum tomatoes)
3 or 4 black olives (I use Kalamata) Black Olive Nutrition
1 tsp TJ's Capers - protein, fiber, iron
1 big clove of fresh garlic (i've been using TJ's fresh frozen cubes but I'm going to switch to back to fresh garlic cloves....slight difference in taste)
1 TBSP onions
1 cube of Basil (or 1/2C fresh leaves chopped)
1/8 tsp of red pepper flakes (a little goes a long way but they BURN FAT and add a kick of flavor)
1 tsp Olive Oil
OPTIONAL: mushrooms, onions, Sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, 1 fresh date for sweetness if you like a bit sweeter sauce (raw agave or pure maple syrup also works)
I just wash the tomatoes, slice them in bite-sized pieces and heat them up in the sauce pan with all the ingredients. I don't want to cook all the nutrition out so I don't worry about thickening the sauce. Add it to the cooked noodles and enjoy.
I got tired of listing nutritional facts on each item but they're all packed with nutrition for various reasons. You can google nutrition benefits for each.
