Dinner Tonight: Spaghetti and Meatballs
I only had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning, not much of an appetite this morning. After my Tea I went to Meijer for a few items I needed. A bit warmer today, 86 degrees with some humidity later in the afternoon. Took my car up to the local car wash and had it cleaned, much needed. Then stopped by the bank and got gas before coming home. Not a whole lot to do today so I caught up on some little jobs in and around the house. For dinner tonight I prepared Spaghetti and Meatballs.
It seems like forever since I’ve made Spaghetti and Meatballs and it really sounded good for Dinner
To prepare the dish; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. In a sauce pan I add my
Meatballs and Ragu Sauce, heated on medium low until heated through. In a large bowl I added the finished Spaghetti, the Sauce and Meatballs and mixed and served. Topped the Spaghetti with the Shaved Parmesan Cheese. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Spaghetti
Here’s something to absorb: One serving of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST pasta has over 20% of your daily recommended fiber intake – but did you know that fiber is good for you in more ways than just digestion?
People with diets high in fiber have a lower risk for weight gain, obesity, development of insulin resistance and ronzonidiabetes. Fiber also prevents constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulitis, but it also helps reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases like colon and breast cancer. Fiber may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and total cholesterol, therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. It can also help lower blood sugar to better manage diabetes.
Dietary fiber is the edible part of plants, primarily carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the small intestine. Fiber may be digested by fermentation in the large intestine. By eating high fiber foods you feel fuller, eat less, with fewer absorbed calories.
Fiber comes in two basic forms – soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, seeds, brown rice, oats and barley. It prevents or reduces the absorption of certain substances into the bloodstream. Insoluble fiber is found mainly in whole grains and on the outside of seeds, fruits, legumes, and other foods. It is like a sponge that swells within the intestine to promote more efficient elimination and alleviate some digestive disorders.
Fiber is found only in plant foods and passes through the digestive tract without being completely broken down. Being indigestible, fiber provides no nutrients to the body, which is why for many years it was removed from processed foods like white bread. But, nutritionists have since discovered that fiber performs valuable functions precisely because it is not digested, and it is essential to good health.
