And here is another very unusual recipe for spaghetti with vegetables. Its piquancy lies in the fact that there are pine nuts. For this dish you need to take:
two hundred and fifty grams of spaghetti;
four hundred grams of young peas;
a pound of cherry tomatoes ;
a pound of champignons;
three hundred and fifty grams of chicken;
one bunch of onions;
one teaspoon of olive oil;
ground black pepper;
one glass of broth;
fifty grams of pine nuts.

Spaghetti with mussels go well together. We take the following ingredients:
nine hundred grams of unpeeled mussels;
olive oil five tablespoons;
three cloves of finely chopped garlic;
a bunch of parsley;
four tablespoons of dry white wine;
five hundred grams of spaghetti.
In the beginning, you need to thoroughly rinse the mussels from the algae in cold water, put them cook on fire in a small amount of water. When the mussel shells begin to open, take them out with a slotted spoon. Strain the broth in which they cooked, but do not pour.
Fry the garlic and parsley (finely chopped) in a preheated pan for two to three minutes.
Then, in speed, put the mussels, pour in the wine and the broth left over from the cooking. Stew everything over medium heat. Add pepper and salt to taste.
While everything is being stewed in a pan, boil spaghetti. Then mix them with stewed mussels. To soak them well in the sauce, put out a couple more minutes. This dish is good to serve hot.
Spaghetti with tomato paste and mushrooms and sausages are no less delicious.
This recipe is simple.
Take two or three sausages, cut into circles, lightly fry and set aside for a while. Now mushrooms, approximately five hundred grams, finely cut into a pan. At the same time, do not forget to slightly salt them. A little later we put onions there and all this is brought to a golden color. While the mushrooms are red, we cook spaghetti in salted water at this time. As soon as the mushrooms with onion are browned, pour the sausages here and then the spaghetti. And at the end we add tomato paste and mix thoroughly.
Very simple and delicious!
