Healthier Spaghetti O's

I know some would cringe on the thought of feeding their kids a can of spaghetti O's.  I do serve my kids' spaghetti O's. Not very often, but it is a lifesaver for those times when this momma is just too sick to cook or the seldom "momma, can we have spaghetti O's". Just remember, giving them the O's doesn't make you a bad mom. But for those who cringe and who want a healthier option, don't despair. Here's a healthier Spaghetti-O's that your kids will surely love.


2 tbsp Olive oil
1 cup  EACH OF chopped: celery, onion, and carrots.
4 cups vegetable broth (Homemade is good to use)
15 oz can tomato puree
2 cups ditalini or macaroni salad pasta
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste.


  1. In a large pot, cook veggies in olive oil until tender.
  2. Add broth and tomato puree, bring to a rolling boil,
  3. Add the pasta and cook to Al dente;
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve with sprinkle Parmesan cheese.

Easy right? 

A hearty recipe that your kids will eat and love.
