Trader Joe's Whole Foods' Healthy Pasta ( Low Salt )

This Healthy Pasta recipe combines products from three stores, although you could probably find the ingredients in one if you substitute brands.

It's really hard to find a low salt pre-made pasta sauce and good tasting whole wheat pasta.

The majority of pasta sauces have insane amounts of sodium, and most of hte whole wheat pasta I've tried has a cardboard texture.

In this recipe, I've found a great combination, a low salt sauce and a good tasting whoe wheat pasta.

Cook the pasta according the the directions on the package. This pasta takes a while to cook. I think the longer you cook it hte better it gets.

Microwave the meatballs.

Heat the sauce in a saucepan.

Transfer the heated meatbals to the saucepan.

Drain the pasta and put them back in the pot.

Add the sauce nad meatballs mixture to the pasta pot, cover, and let sit for a bit.
