For a diet to succeed it has to be appealing, Mary Flynn says. Here's a dinner that healthy, delicious, and filling.
Spaghetti with Tomatoes, Feta, and Basil

 

Serves One, 520 Calories

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 cup (5 ounces) cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half

Salt

1 ounce feta cheese

1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn

2 ounces whole wheat spaghetti

Heat the olive oil on medium-low heat in a medium skillet. Add the tomatoes, season with salt, and cook slowly so they absorb the olive oil, about 10 minutes. Add the feta and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the feta starts to melt. Remove from the heat and add the basil leaves.

While the tomatoes are cooking, bring six cups of water to a boil. Add salt and the pasta, stirring occasionally until the water returns to a boil so the pasta does not stick together. Cook according to directions on the pasta package, tasting a minute before in case the package is wrong. Drain and toss with the sauce.

The recipe was delicious and so I picked the book up on Amazon to try more recipes and get more detail. I like the fact that it includes footnotes to scientific literature, as there is so my hype out there. I plan to send the article to my friends and family who have been treated for breast cancer.
