Spaghetti with a Twist

This simple meatless spaghetti recipe has all the flavors you love like basil, oregano, thyme, and tomatoes, with a little something extra.

 

If you’re a bit bored of plain spaghetti, these simple additions will make this dish something entirely new!

 

I added a dash of curry and smoked paprika, and a little bit of creamy coconut milk to give this traditional recipe a deeper flavor!

 

They don’t overpower the herbs, just make for a well-rounded pasta dish with so much flavor and richness!

This recipe is also filled with flavorful zucchini, white onion and garlic.

 

It’s a great dinner idea for feeding a crowd because it’s super budget-friendly!

 

This spaghetti-with-a-twist is sure to impress: it looks the same but has so much hidden flavor.

Simple Homemade Marinara Sauce

If you’re really in a pinch for time, you can always buy store bought marinara and just add the extra flavors to it.

 

But if you can, this homemade version is so worth it!

 

Start by cooking the onion, garlic, and zucchini until tender, then add the tomatoes, tomato paste, coconut milk, herbs, curry powder and smoked paprika.

 

Bring all of this to a soft boil, reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for at least 20-30 minutes so the flavors can marinate – the longer you wait the better it will taste!

 

If your sauce is a little runny, this step will also help thicken it up. After it’s done cooking, sprinkle in your nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor (this also helps thicken the sauce even more), and then add the cooked pasta!
