Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Garlic-Infused Oil, Spinach, Mint and Basil. Oh my!

| 2 Comments

Inspired by Giada DeLaurentiis, a simple pasta that you can have for any meal when you’re just not in the mood for a heavy marinara sauce.

Ingredients:
1 pack of whole wheat spaghetti
1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp or more of red pepper flakes
Salt and black pepper for taste
2 – 3 tbsp of spinach julienned
2 – 3 tbsp of mint julienned
2 – 3 tbsp of basil julienned
2 cloves of garlic

Cook whole wheat spaghetti as per package. In a pan, heat oil and garlic and cook, but do not let the garlic turn brown or it will be bitter. Drain spaghetti right when you want to add oil or else spaghetti will dry up and not soak up the oil properly. Add the spinach, mint and basil and stir thoroughly adding the red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Enjoy!
