I am back with another recipe that you all can try at home.
I love spaghetti and it’s been one of my favourites for years.
Making spaghetti can be tiresome due to all the work involved but at the end it’s worth it.
Reasons why I love making Spaghetti at home
First and foremost I love them. There were times when I would go to the same restaurant almost everyday and order the same spaghetti for my main course because I was kind of obsessed with how they tasted.
But yeah , when it comes to good tasty spaghetti at a crazy expensive restaurant , it can be really sad at times.
Making this at home is going to be economical and to all the spaghetti lovers – this one is easy to make , requires minimal ingredients and you do not have to be a master chef to crack this one!
So here is how to make an easy and simple Classic Spaghetti!
Whole Wheat Spaghetti ( recommended) / Regular Spaghetti (1 cup , cooked)
Mozzarella cheese (1 tsp grated)
Olives ( 2 tbsp, chopped)
Oregano (1 tsp)
Chicken Breast (¼ cup)
Chilly Flakes (¼ tsp)
Salt (½ tsp)
Pepper (½ tsp)
Olive Oil (2 tbsp)
Garlic cloves (2 tbsp, chopped)
Boil the water for 3 mins on high flame and add the spaghetti , pinch of salt and boil it for 15 mins more. Once it’s cooked, drain the water using a strainer.
In a pan, add the olive oil, chicken breast pieces, pepper, salt and cook it for 7 mins. Add chopped garlic, olives and saute it for 2 mins and add the spaghetti. Mix it well and saute it for 3 mins.
Add some oregano and grated cheese on top of it.
Simple and healthy spaghetti ready to eat!
Why do I choose Whole Wheat spaghetti over regular pasta?
Wheat spaghetti is packed with better nutrients than the white pasta. If you read the nutritional table at the back ,the whole wheat pasta consists of 6 g of dietary fibre whereas the regular white pasta has 2.5 g to 3 g. In this way , whole wheat spaghetti with complex carbohydrates can be filling and digested slowly making you feel less hungry often.
Whole wheat spaghetti has fewer calories compared to white pasta and is also tasty , hence you can keep a check on your weight gain.
White pastas are highly processed and lose their nutritional content in the process making it useless calories to your body.
To know if it’s a whole wheat spaghetti , you can always check the ingredients as whole wheat is going to be the first in the list.
Know what you eat – Nutritional Content
This consists of 540 calories with 24 g of carbs , 20 g of protein and 33 g of fat.
High amount of calories is due to the olive oil which has a good amount of saturated fat ,polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat.
