This pasta dish has no bouillon, or any other meat, in it. It’s colorful, hearty, tasty, and a great way to get greens into your evening meal. It also makes for wonderful leftovers. At the firehouse we usually make a tub full and polish it off before going home the next day at noon.

Ingredients

  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 can corn, rinsed and drained

  • 1 large jar pasta sauce
  • 16 ounces whole-grain spaghetti, cooked
