Garlic Lemon Whole Wheat Spaghetti – it’s Vegan too!

19 Jun

Pasta is one of my favorite comfort foods next to Pizza!  Garlic Lemon Whole Wheat Spaghetti is one of the many wonderful pasta dishes from my mother’s kitchen. There is no need for salt because the lemon, garlic and herbs give it enough flavor!  We all want to cut back on our salt intake so the lemon will fill that void.  You will be amazed at how  easy  this dish is to make and it is vegan too!

If you do not like the taste of whole wheat you can use regular spaghetti, or you can do half whole wheat, half white!  I do this sometimes to mix it up a bit.

  • 1 box of whole wheat spaghetti
  • 5 cloves of garlic – chopped
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 sprig of parsley – chopped
  • 1/4 can of black olives – chopped
  • Olive oil
  • pepper to taste  ( no salt needed, the lemon replaces the need for salt)

    • In large pot of boiling water cook spaghetti according to package directions
    • Meanwhile in large fry pan, saute garlic in ½ tsp of olive oil
    • set aside
    • Drain pasta and rinse with cold water

    • Add Cooked Spaghetti to garlic mixture
    • Add 1 tbsp of oil and 1 tbsp of water as needed
    • Squeeze lemon juice into the pasta, add pepper to taste
    • Add chopped parsley and black olive
    • Toss to coat the pasta
    • Serve with lemon on the side and a red wine
    • Can be refrigerated and eaten cold or warmed up.

      This dish has a hint of garlic, lemon and olive oil. It is good warm and also cold. Top with parmesean cheese and have a glass of wine with it!
