Broccoli Spaghetti With Almond Sauce

Broccoli Spaghetti With Almond Sauce is a decadent vegetarian meal with toasted almonds, baked broccoli and tangy cream cheese.

Here’s my recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of thinly sliced almonds

  • 1 head of broccoli cut into florets

  • 1 bell pepper

  • 1 cup of stewed tomatoes

  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • 1 onion diced

  • 2 bayleaves

  • 2 servings of spaghetti

  • 1/4 cup of cream cheese

  • salt

 

Method:

  • Cook the spaghetti according to package instructions and set aside. Reserve 1 cup of cooking liquid

  • Heat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay the almonds in a single layer on it. Bake the almonds for 5 minutes or until they brown and set them aside.
