This fantastic tasty spaghetti dish will totally satisfy your pasta cravings, and it is loaded with great ingredients to support great health. My favorite of favorites. All the ingredients are best when fresh or organic. Use kelp and cayenne instead of black pepper which can be acidity. Mushrooms can be shiitakes which are known to fight the development and progression of cancer and AIDS by boosting the body’s immune system. Tomatoes too contain lycopene, that appear in some studies to have a lower risk of certain types of cancer. The bet part is the filling feeling of being satisfied. Who doesn’t like pasta?
I always encourage the reader to play around with spices. We do have some favorites that we use all the time. Try something different. You may be pleasantly surprised.
