Hide Your Veggies!

I don't have an issue getting vegetables into my diet, but the rest of my family does. So I thought I'd try to secretly add some to a great dish....it worked! Nobody knows the difference (I never divulged), it had great flavor, and the fam gobbled it up! 

I love spaghetti and I used the rotini vegetable noodles (carrot, spinach, tomato) where one serving of noodles is a serving of of vegetables. Plus it's higher in protein than regular durum wheat noodles. These don't taste any different. 

Vegetable Rotini

15 oz stewed tomatoes
15 oz tomato sauce 
½ lb grass fed beef
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tbsp worchtershire sauce
½ tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp Italian seasoning
½ tsp oregano (or couple drops of oregano essential oil)
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
¼ cup finely grated carrot
¼ cup finely chopped onion 
¼ cup finely chopped/minced spinach (optional)
Italian cheese blend or mozzarella 
Rotini noodles (vegetable)

1. Put all ingredients in medium sauce pan. 
2. Stir occasionally and simmer low for at least 30+ minutes. 
3. Boil water and cook rotini. 
4. Serve with breadsticks and salad.
