Easy Pasta Casserole

Low Fat
Serves 4-6

8 oz. pasta (I like to use tri-color spirals)
3-4 cups frozen veggie medley (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower or other combo)
1 1/2 c fat-free cheese
salt, pepper, onion powder, other spices to taste
wheat germ
grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Cook and drain the pasta. Defrost the veggies and add. Add the cheese and
seasonings. Put into a 2 quart casserole dish, which has been sprayed with
Pam (or equivalent). Sprinkle liberally with wheat germ and lightly with
Parmesan (if used). Cook in microwave for 15 minutes.

  1. Hi,

    Pasta is easy to make and you don't have to spend hours in the kitchen. Kids love it and although it has all those carbs, whole wheat pasta is a good source of dietary fiber. Furthermore, preparing a Healthy Pasta dish at home is recommended where you are in charge of the ingredients you add. Try to always keep the size of a portion under control and by adding more vegetables and lean meat you couldn't ask for a more delightful and healthy meal.

    To most people, pasta means spaghetti and meatballs. It is not so. By using your imagination and whatever is available in your pantry you can make some very healthy pasta dishes with simple toppings such as grated cheese, or by adding lean meat, leafy green vegetables, red and green peppers, or onion and garlic you can have a masterpiece of nutrition that will be healthy and economical. You can also serve a healthy pasta dish warm, with a delicious sauce or cold, in a salad.
