Here is another simple recipe for Day 2 of the BM #25. This happens to be one of the little one's favorites for the lunch box. On the rare occasion when I run out of store bought marinara sauce, I substitute with regular ketchup or Home Made Pizza Sauce adjusting the taste to suit her sensitive palate.

Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce
Spaghetti with Marinara sauce, Juice and Salad
Ingredients - 

*Spaghetti 90 gms or as needed 
Salt as needed
Marinara sauce 2 Tbsp or as needed
Shredded cheese 2 Tbsp or as needed
Olive oil 1 tsp

* I use whole wheat or multi grain varieties and sometimes mix them up with the regular spaghetti so the kids don't figure it out!

Method Of Preparation -

Cook the spaghetti in boiling water adding salt and olive oil until it is just about cooked.

Strain and set aside.

In a heated pan add the marinara sauce and let the sauce heat up. Transfer the spaghetti onto the sauce and mix well.

Sprinkle shredded cheese and serve it warm or pack it warm.
