modified from a recipe on the back of a box of Prince Healthy Harvest™ Whole Wheat Pasta Blend — Thin Spaghetti

  • 1 box Prince Health Harvest™ Thin Spaghetti (or can also use any other brand of high fiber pasta)
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp minced fresh garlic (mince 10 minutes prior to heating to maintain garlic's anti-cancer activity)
  • 2-3 Tbsp. basalmic vinegar
  • 3 cups fresh tomatoes, diced (include the seeds and the yellow goo that surrounds them, which are power-packed with anti-cancer molecules!)
  • 1- 16 oz. can cannelloni beans (rinse and drain)
  • ~16 small black olives (I like the Niçoise olives from the south of France - remember that they have the pits still in them)
  • 1/4 cup minced mixture of fresh basil, oregano, parsley or more to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. Asiago cheese
  • 8 cups fresh greens (mixture of salad greens and spinach, beet greens, chard, kale or whatever is available)

Directions:

  • Cook spaghetti according to directions on box, drain
  • Wash fresh greens, spin or pat dry, tear or cut into bite size pieces
  • Heat olive oil in large frying pan over medium heat, sauté garlic a few minutes (do not brown), add tomatoes and beans and herbs. Heat until all is warm - just a few minutes.
  • Toss the spaghetti, vinegar, and tomato-herb mixture in large salad bowl.
  • On 4 individual large plates first layer the greens, then the spaghetti mixture, garnish each plate with 4-5 olives and a sprinkle of the Asiago cheese.

Serves 4 generously. Serve warm with a hearty whole grain crusty bread (to wipe up all the yummy sauce) and some fresh seasonal fruit for a complete meal. Also can be made early in the day, chilled, and then served cold on a hot summer evening.

 


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
