Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

This appealing, meatless main dish from Angela Strother of Gainesville, Florida is full of cheesy, tomato flavor. “If you want it saucier, add a bit of the reserved pasta water,” Angela suggests.


  • 4 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 small tomatoes, quartered
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 5 fresh basil leaves
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Dash salt and pepper
  • 2 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup hot water


  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the oil, tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, basil, onions, garlic, salt and pepper; cover and process until coarsely chopped.
  2. Drain spaghetti and place in a bowl. Add the tomato mixture, mozzarella cheese and water; toss to coat.
