Three ways I stretch a pasta serving. 2/6/22

Last week I made a tasty meat sauce that was actually more mushrooms than meat and served it for three dinners and one lunch. Of course that was a lot of pasta to eat so I used some tricks to make a small amount of pasta go a long way.

The first time I served my 3 ounce portion was over my lower carb and calorie fettuccine
The second dinner I used a smaller portion of regular penne and filled half my plate with salad.
For last night’s leftovers dinner I filled my bowl with shredded kale to fool my eyes and appetite that I was having a big bowlful.

Not only did I really stretch out this tasty and economical pasta dish, I never felt like I was “dieting” and I got the healthy benefit of green vegetables!
