Flat Belly Comfort Food
Cheesy Pasta with Spinach: Mix 3/4 cup cooked whole wheat pasta, 1 tablespoon canola oil, 3 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, 1 cup baby spinach leaves, and 1/2 cup marinara sauce. Microwave for 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 minutes to melt the cheese and cook the spinach. I like to add a bit of Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend. Serve hot.
Note: Two of my favorite healthy marinara sauces (low sodium, etc.) are Francesco Rinaldi TO BE Healthy Spicy Marinara Pasta Sauce (Woodman's in regular pasta sauce isle) and Cucian Antica garlic Marinara Cooking Sauce—only 36 calories per 1/2 cup. I buy it at HyVee in the Organic and Natural Food isles)
