EasyPeasie Veggie-Boosted Spaghetti Recipe


First, here's your quick and "easy peasy" recipe... 

Add 1-2 tablespoons of EasyPeasie Green Blend to marinara sauce while cooking, or sprinkle EasyPeasie directly onto your finished dish! Two tablespoons of EasyPeasie is equivalent to a whole cup of vegetables!


And here's your detailed recipe!


  • 8 oz spaghetti noodles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons EasyPeasie Green Blend
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped (optional for garnish)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional for serving)


  1. Cook the Spaghetti: In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the spaghetti noodles according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Prepare the Sauce: In a large skillet or saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add the minced garlic and sauté for another minute until fragrant.
  3. Pour in the crushed tomatoes and stir well. Add the dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well and let the sauce simmer for about 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  4. Stir in the EasyPeasie Green Blend, ensuring it's well incorporated into the sauce. Let the sauce simmer for another 5 minutes.
  5. Combine Spaghetti and Sauce: Add the drained spaghetti to the sauce and toss well, ensuring the noodles are well coated with the veggie-boosted sauce.
  6. Serve: Plate the spaghetti and garnish with fresh basil if desired. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese for an added touch. Serve hot and enjoy your nutritious and delicious veggie-boosted spaghetti!

Note: The addition of EasyPeasie Green Blend not only enriches the flavor of the sauce but also provides a nutritional boost, making this classic dish even more wholesome. It's a fantastic way to sneak in some extra veggies into a family-favorite meal!
