It’s back to school time which means families are beginning new routines and healthier habits. As you may know, the latest trend in healthy eating is eating clean and choosing foods with short ingredient lists. According to a recent story in The Wall Street Journal many packaged food companies are taking note and reducing the number of ingredients in their products. Consumers want simplicity in their ingredients.

With this in mind, I decided to share my favorite super fast and simple 3-Ingredient Healthy Spaghetti recipe that I whip up in minutes using Victoria Fine Food Tomato Herb marinara sauce. I love partnering with the folks at Victoria as they put their ingredients on the front of the label. There is no guessing what’s in your food and you can feel good feeding your family this simple but delicious recipe.

A savory breakfast sandwich with egg, cheese, bacon and avocado is the perfect way to start the day. To create this tasteful breakfast sandwich, 5 simple ingredients are needed.
