Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Vegetables in Almond Sauce is a truly attractive dish replete with colourful and crunchy veggies, a luscious almond sauce and of course, whole wheat spaghetti. We have avoided pasta made from refined flour and used a limited quantity of whole wheat spaghetti instead, to make this dish as nutritious as can be for the mother-to-be!
Use your discretion to toss in as many scrumptious veggies as you wish to, as these not only make the dish attractive and tasty but also provide you enough fibre and antioxidants. The almonds make this delicacy rich in vitamin E, while a little amount of cheese adds calcium to create a thoroughly satisfying meal. When you yearn for pasta during pregnancy, try having this mouth-watering creation, occasionally and in limited serving size.
