A little sauce goes a long way here, so I've halved the meat content but added more vegetables to compensate for the bulk loss. The sauce will coat the spaghetti perfectly, saving you money and calories. You can add a little finely grated Parmesan cheese, if you like, at the end. I use a Microplane grater, which makes 20 grams look and go a long way!
