A classic Italian eggplant sauce gets a healthy makeover! Eggplant can soak up a lot of oil; we’ve reduced the amount here, and added a healthier pasta choice than the standard white pasta. Feel free to increase the hot pepper flakes.
Penne with Eggplant Sauce
Spaghetti with Peas and Peameal Bacon
Colourful and delicious, this warming dish makes a satisfying meal on a cold night.
Easy Weeknight Broccoli Pasta
Broccoli is a nutritional powerhouse- it offers fibre, calcium, vitamins and phytochemicals. One bunch of broccoli is made up of several heads; one head is one individual stem plus its crown. You only need one head for this recipe.
Deep-fried chickpea croquettes called falafel are a Middle Eastern specialty and are also a popular street food in Canada’s urban areas. Here we form falafel mixture into patties instead of croquettes and reduce the fat by frying in a nonstick pan.
We named this lightning because you can make it a flash! In the true Italian manner, the dish is sparsely sauced keeping the emphasis on the pasta. Buy a bag of prewashed baby spinach to keep the preparation time down.
Teriyaki Tofu Noodle Bowl
Double the teriyaki, with our teriyaki tofu and our teriyaki marinade! A beautiful and colourful presentation.
Creamy Tomato Sauce with Pasta
A quick and easy pasta for a weeknight. Evaporated milk adds wonderful creaminess to the sauce, as well as making this a good source of calcium with 260 mg per serving.
Pasta with Zucchini Rounds
A wonderfully fresh pasta toss that can be made year-round. Coarsely grating the Parmigiano creates lovely melting bits in the finished dish.
Mediterranean Shrimp Pasta
Greece is famous for its shrimp in tomato sauce with feta cheese melting on top – the inspiration for this pasta dish.
