Makes 6 Servings- Low Fat

This old-fashioned, potluck dish is a great cold-weather meal: It’s quick, easy to fix and hearty without being heavy.

1 lb. thin spaghetti
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium red bell pepper, diced
1 Tbs. whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups nonfat milk
3 cups chopped fresh spinach
1 tsp. dried Italian herb mix
1/2 cup liquid egg substitute or 2 egg whites
3 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese

1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions, omitting salt. Lightly coat 10-inch deep-dish pie plate or ovenproof casserole with cooking spray. Drain pasta; arrange in pie plate or casserole, forming crust. Set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 350°F. In large skillet, heat oil over low heat. Add onion, garlic and bell pepper. Cook, stirring often, until onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle vegetable mixture with flour. Cook, stirring, 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat. Whisk in milk, a little at a time. Return skillet to medium-low heat, stirring until sauce thickens. Remove from heat; add spinach. Cool mixture slightly; stir in herb mix and egg substitute. Pour mixture into pasta crust and sprinkle top with cheese.

3. Bake until filling is set and heated through, about 30 minutes. Serve hot.
