I celebrate noodles, always, but since today is actually National Noodle Day, it’s fitting that I introduce to you my favorite weeknight angel hair spaghetti dish. A super affordable recipe I created for my family for just under $2 per serving.

A secret ingredient I like to include in my spaghetti is Knorr® Selects Vegetable Granulated Bouillon! I especially love the freshness that comes with the tomatoes, garlic, and basil. The punch of flavor from the Knorr® bouillon is amazing, and my husband enjoys the protein that comes from the beans.

Best of all, this easy-to-use product can be prepared and ready to eat in 30 minutes or less!

This is a great recipe for back-to-school and busy work weeks when you are strapped for both time and cash. Knorr® turns simple, plant-based ingredients into a proper, flavorful meal that the whole family will love and feel good about!

Cost: $2.00 per serving

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound of angel hair spaghetti
  • 1 cup of pasta water
  • 2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 10.5 ounces of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 15 ounces of great northern beans
  • 1 teaspoon of Knorr® Selects Vegetable Granulated Bouillon
  • 8 basil leaves, chopped

Instructions
 

  • In a large pot over medium-high heat, cook pasta according to package instructions. Before you strain the pasta, reserve one cup of the pasta water and set aside.
  • In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat the vegetable oil. Add the onion, garlic, cherry tomatoes, Knorr® Selects Vegetable Granulated Bouillon and basil leaves, and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until veggies are tender.
  • Stir in the angel hair spaghetti, beans, and pasta water.
  • Serve warm.

Notes

Change out your bouillon granules for whatever type of broth you have on hand. It adds tons of flavor instead of using just water.
