this sounds very good. however, i would suggest a change from the regular spaghetti which is high in carbs, to dreamfields pasta. it is usually found at kroger stores and sometimes at foodcity stores. it comes in a black box. per serving, your body gets only five grams of carbs. i have exchanged this pasta for the regular kind for my family and they cannot tell the difference.

Pasta during induction, even dreamfields pasta is the road to failure.

Not everyone is on a zero-carbs diet :) I love making sauce with turkey meat instead of beef! Much healthier. I also added spinach and used whole wheat pasta instead of white. Nice addition!
