Pasta Fever

I'm a pasta lover. How doesn't? Well, maybe there are some who doesn't like pasta. But for me, I am a [sucker] for pasta [excuse my choice of word... wink*].

I love pasta in all shapes, sizes, colors and flavors. I love past for different reasons. And I love pasta because I love it.

I love pasta because it is easy to prepare. I love pasta because there are variety of ways to prepare it. And I love pasta because there are different kinds of sauces that you can put on it.

Today, I made a Whole Wheat Macaroni with Tofu and Mushroom.

You will need:

1. Tofu [diced], mushroom, onion, garlic, tomato [all chopped], olive oil [for sautéing], tomato paste or tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, onion salt, whole wheat macaroni, and Parmesan cheese.

2. Cook macaroni according to package's instruction. Set aside.

3. Sauté chopped garlic, onion, and tomato in olive oil. 

4. Add diced tofu. Cook and stir until golden brown.

5. Season with onion salt.

6. Add mushroom and cook till soft.

7. Add tomato paste. You may add a bit of water so that sauce will not be too thick.

8. Season. You may add dash of sugar or pineapple juice if you want it a little sweet.

9. Serve as topping on whole wheat macaroni and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Enjoy.

Pasta is a complex carbohydrate so it is good for us eaten in balance with other healthy foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. I love pasta but my husband doesn't. He has to restrict his because of diabetes.

Wonderful recipe, Ruthi, with great pics. Thanks!
