Even More Spaghetti

After celebrating this national holiday (see previous post), I realized that even though I eat some sort of pasta dish every day, I never eat the same dish twice.

I guess what I should name this dish(es) is Pasta With Everything But The Kitchen Sink.

I usually start by boiling some dried whole wheat spaghetti/rigatoni/penne/etc. while searching the refrigerator and pantry for ingredients. You’d be surprised at the things I’ve realized taste good with pasta. I’ve gone from fava beans, tomatoes, and mozzarella (mediterranean Asian fusion spin?), to black beans, corn, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese (Taco Pasta).

My favorite pasta dish I created the other day because we were out of tomatoes and sauce (what was I do to?!) when I sauteed some onions, leeks, and mushrooms mixed in with the spaghetti, sriracha hot sauce, and Parmesan cheese. It was super simple and did not look like your typical pasta dish and I loved it!

Now it’s time to start writing down the additions to these bowls of deliciousness so I can recreate them!

But for now – the simplest pasta dish that will please meat lovers AND vegetarians =)

** Pasta Size! **

1 cup cooked whole wheat spaghetti


1/2 cup premade pasta sauce


1/2 cup tomato sauce

1/4 tsp oregano

1/8 tsp thyme

1/8 tsp tarragon


1 tsp sriracha hot sauce (or to desired heat)


1 boca burger, cooked as per package instructions


1. Heat pasta sauce on stove, add sriracha sauce

2. Add pasta to sauce

3. Pour pasta and sauce on top of boca burger

4. Top with parmesean cheese if desired

See? Simple yet delicious! Let me know if you like it =)
