Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

No one wine will suit every pasta dish. Pasta in a tomato-based sauce will usually work well with a medium-bodied red, such as a montepulciano or chianti. Pasta with seafood or pesto will fare better with a light-bodied white, such as a pinot grigio. Cheese-heavy pasta can pair well with red or white - you might try a sangiovese wine for hard cheeses and a chardonnay for soft cheeses. We may be able to make a better recommendation if you ask again with a specific pasta dish.

Instructions

  1. Heat the Gardenburger(r) in a nonstick pan lightly sprayed with olive oil for about 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the whole-wheat pasta as suggested on the package. Heat the tomato sauce, then add the VeggiePack pieces and mushrooms. Simmer until the vegetables are crisp but tender (about 5 minutes).
  3. Place the pasta in serving dishes, then cover with the sauce and vegetable mixture. Toss lightly. Sprinkle the diced Gardenburger on top. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and minced parsley.
  4. NOTES : The recipe below is similar to one we use when we are tempted to eat out. Have on hand a jar of low-fat marinara, veggie burgers, mixed frozen veggies, and pasta!
  5. Note: Many of us have a love affair with pasta - I know I do. The secret to "real" pasta is to search out a reliable source of fresh or dry whole-grain pasta. Buying enriched pasta instead of whole-grain is like paying for an item at the market and only getting 20 percent of your change back. Would that make you feel enriched? "High five" for whole grains! Eating food created by nature is more than a smart choice, it's the right choice!

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you are concerned about BPA-linings in canned products, look for tomato products packaged in glass, as acidic foods like tomatoes are more likely to leach BPA from the lining. You might also look for low-sodium versions or the label "no salt added" to cut down on unnecessary sodium.

  • You can easily replace regular noodles with whole wheat noodles to add a little extra fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals to this dish. Just don't make the mistake of assuming that because the pasta is whole wheat, you can eat as much as you want. The calories and the effect on your blood sugar is not so drastically different!

  • The great thing about parmesan cheese is that a little goes a long way, especially if you're buying the real deal.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If parmesan plays a big role in the flavor of your dish (or if you're a serious foodie or serious about avoiding additivies) it might be worth your time to track down "true" parmesan, Parmigiano Reggiano.

  • The best method for cooking pasta is pretty controversial, but most sources seem to reach a consensus. Check out our lesson on how to cook pasta in the academy.

Green Tips

  • Parmesan cheese is traditionally made using rennet, an animal-derived enzyme. For this reason, true parmesan cheese is not suitable for vegetarians. You might be able to find a vegetarian hard cheese to substitute.
