Simple Healthy Meals for Busy Mamas and Families: Pasta Bruschetta


Hello Friends!

As a stay at home mom of four and a homeschooler, I have to be pretty creative as to what kind of meals I make. Especially, if I want it to be fast, inexpensive, and healthy. We often think that in order to make healthy food it takes too much time and money.  But it really doesn’t have to.

You just have to remember to keep it simple.

So I would love to share with you some recipes that are, our family’s favs.

Here is the first one.

The first recipe is an Italian dish. Yummy!

Here you go!

Cook Time: 30mins.

Recipe Makes: 6-8 servings


12oz. of pasta of your choice (I used spaghetti)

2 cans (15oz.) diced tomatoes with liquid or 10 freshly diced Roma Tomatoes

1/2 white onion cut into thin slices

6 garlic cloves thinly sliced

2tsp. dried oregano

2 large sprigs fresh basil chopped (Got mine from my Tower Garden)

6 cups free range organic chicken broth

2tsp. extra virgin olive oil

Parmesean Cheese


Place pasta into a large stock pot

Add freshly sliced onions and garlic

Add tomatoes

Add oregano

Add freshly chopped basil

Add Olive Oil

Add Chicken broth

Bring to a boil stirring all the ingredients gently together and then simmer until the broth is  almost gone. Continue to stir gently.

Add salt and pepper to taste and top with Parmesean cheese and more fresh basil if you like.

My preference is to let all of the broth simmer out until all the pasta is  done. The house always smells so amazing!

Please feel free to alter the recipe to suite your family’s needs.

You can also serve this with some garlic bread and a salad. Of course, if you are trying to stay away from bread, hold the bread and just add the salad and enjoy!

Please share in the comments what your family’s favorite healthy meal is. I am always looking to add to our menu!

Have a beautiful day!

In His Love,

Valenties Signature
