Yep, we're having a very humble meal tonight, and we all better be thankful for it. Actually, this is a favorite at this house--I have a couple of hot dog lovers here. I like the combo too. Well, even though they are not considered to be one of the healthiest foods around, I still decided to make this a sneaky nutrition post. Where's the nutrition you say? I know, I'm pushing it a bit, but at least I use turkey franks to cut down on the fat. But there's plenty of nutrition in the pasta. I've been using the whole grain of late and the brand depends on whatever I have coupons for and/or is on sale. This time I have Barilla thin spaghetti, but there are others to choose from. In one serving, you get six grams of fiber, along with significant percentages of iron, phosphorus and magnesium. That's not bad, right? And listen to this: someone at a cooking demo said to put a couple of carrots in your sauce to sweeten the taste a bit. So, if you happen to eat a couple of chunks, a little bit of Vitamin A won't hurt matters either.
So that's our dinner and I'm getting quite hungry. If you ever decide to have this meal, don't forget to serve with spinach or broccoli for the Vitamin C and other good stuff. Now, THAT's rather healthy after all.
If you have any healthy, humble meal combos you'd like to pass on, please do!
