IMG_5025

A chunky, hearty pasta isn’t reserved for those recipes involving a meat sauce. This recipe takes mushrooms and vegetables to create a meaty, filling bolognese to top spelt-based spaghetti. Check out the full recipe at Greatist.com. The recipe as it stands is vegan, but feel free to top with cheese for extra creaminess.

Crimini mushrooms (also called “baby bellas”): have only 3-4 calories per one, are low in carbohydrates and sodium, are an excellent source of cancer-fighting selenium, reduce blood pressure and risk of stroke, are a good source of B-vitamins, contain tryptophan, which is essential to create vitamin B-3 and helps control sleep pattern and mood swings, help to prevent breast cancer and contain a high amount of antioxidant L-ergothioneine, which is important in protecting from UV and radiation as well as contributing to the liver’s detoxification abilities.
