As a diabetic, I'm always looking for healthy recipes that are tasty too. This Whole Wheat Spaghetti dish is quick, easy and vegetarian, as well. Whatever your health condition, it may be a perfect meal for you!

This recipe makes 4 servings and includes about 50 grams carbs each. The good thing about whole wheat pasta is that it will not spike your blood sugar, and will help keep it even over several hours after your meal.

Plus, the whole wheat will help keep you satisfied for hours. You'll be less likely to snack and "cheat" on your diet. All around, great news!


1 box (13 oz) whole wheat blend pasta (spaghetti noodles recommended)
2 T. olive oil
2 T. garlic cloves, minced
1 yellow onion, minced
2 peppers (your choice: red, yellow and/or green)
1/2 c. sliced mushrooms
salt and pepper to taste


Heat 5 quarts water to a rapid boil. Add pasta and cook for 10-11 minutes. Drain, rinse and set aside.

Meanwhile, take a medium saute pan and heat olive oil. Saute garlic, onion, peppers and/or mushrooms for 3-4 minutes.

Pour mixture over pasta and stir.

Serve with fresh greens. Delicious and nutritious!


  1. I've switched to whole wheat pasta. You really can't tell the difference :) Great recipe.

  2. I totally agree. Much healthier (like wheat bread vs. white). Thanks Susan.
