Wholewheat Tomato Pepper Spaghetti And Sauce Recipe

Know What You Eat: Tomato pepper wholewheat spaghetti comes handy for weekend lunch/dinner ideas as I always keep very easy to make pasta sauce ready to use. Not using cheese here, but you can shred any vegetarian cheese just before serving. Always choose wholewheat options for  pasta, noodles and spaghetti for their nutrition content, low sodium, and high fiber.
