Deliciousness to the Max

So I got home from class today and was SUPER hungry, so I headed to the pantry. There I discovered a can of artichokes and many cans of diced tomatoes. I thought to myself, "Hm...that sounds pretty good!" Until I got to the box of spaghetti noodles and thought, "Mmm. This could be pretty darn tasty together!" So I grabbed all of my exciting ingredients, lined 'em up on the kitchen counter and decided to utilize to my trusty MacBook Pro to search for a tasty recipe.

I started by searching through recipes on EatingWell.com, my recent go-to site for all things delectable, but I didn't find anything to satisfy my cravings. So I hopped on the Google train and, lo and behold, I discovered MY DREAM RECIPE! I was so excited, and all I had seen was the first picture!

Doesn't that just scream, "Eat me!"??? I love artichokes, tomatoes, onions, and tons of other colorful veggies, so this was definitely my cup of tea  plate of spaghetti. I was so inspired that I even threw in a few fresh mushrooms to add my own little twist.

Now, I'm no Iron Chef, but I gotta say...this meal was INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS! It's got the perfect balance of cream and tomato. And it's only 410 calories per serving. You get all your veggies (fresh and canned), a small amount of carbs, and one appetizing meal that the whole family will love! My little picky-eater of a brother even said it was good! 

Below are a few of my personal photos cooking along the way, but they're no where near as good as the ones on Pioneer Woman's website. So check 'em out! There are tons of great recipes (and other things) scattered there.

 It was so delicious that I forgot to take a picture of the meal all lovely on my 
plate! So here's a picture of the leftovers, enough for lunch tomorrow! 

Needless to say, this is my all time favorite recipe (so far). Mmm. =) It makes me all happy just thinking about how yummy it was. I can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
