Chicken Vegetable Spaghetti is part of our Healthy Recipes collection of low-fat, low-salt, high-flavor, well-balanced recipes.  This is a very tasty dish with a fraction of the fat and salt normally found in spaghetti recipes.

Chicken Vegetable Spaghetti Recipe (low fat, low salt)


While originally served with a meatless marinara sauce, spaghetti has been loaded down with meats and cheeses which dramatically increase the amount of fat.  This recipe has developed in our home so we could enjoy the rich taste of a meaty sauce with a fraction of the fat found in beef sauces.  A lot of "healthy" foods are too bland to serve guests.  This recipe is full of flavor and brightly colored and is bound to please.  For a zesty Italian flavor variation, add 2 tablespoons Fennel seed with the spaghetti mix.  For a spicy flavor variation, add 4 Anaheim peppers to the processed vegetables.  Don't add salt while cooking!  There is plenty of salt in the tomato paste, celery and sauce mix to flavor this dish.  This sauce serves 16.  We usually freeze half to use the next week for pizza, lasagna, etc. 


1 pound ground chicken breast

2 zucchini

2 yellow squash

3 medium carrots

3 stalks celery

1 large onion

1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced

6 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped

12 oz, canned tomato paste

1 qt water

2 envelopes powdered spaghetti sauce mix

1/2 cup red wine.

1 lb spaghetti noodles to serve 8 (we use whole wheat noodles).

Cooking Instructions:

Cook chicken breast in a large Dutch oven over medium heat for about 10 minutes until brow, stirring frequently so meat doesn't clump.
Use a slicer or food processor to fine slice zucchini, squash, carrots, celery & onion (slice mushrooms in larger pieces by hand).  Add all vegetables to the meat and continue cooking about 20 minutes until carrot slices are soft.
Add garlic, tomato paste, water, spaghetti mix and wine, continue simmering, stirring occasionally, while cooking the noodles according to package directions.
Noodle tips!  A little oil and salt in the noodle pot can prevent sticking and over boiling.  Keep noodles in a bowl of warm water to keep them from sticking until serving them.
