Health Highlights


450 gm Spaghetti, whole-wheat, dry (cooked)
6 tomato Roma tomatoes (seeded and chopped)
1 cup Basil, fresh (chopped)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
3 clove(s) Garlic (finely chopped)
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup Goat cheese, semi-soft
1 medium Lemon (cut into wedges)


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat. Cook pasta in a pot of water for 6 minutes or according to package.
  2. Cut 8×12″ pieces of aluminum foil. Layer foil so that you are using 2 per packet. In a bowl, toss together pasta, chopped tomato, basil, salt, pepper, garlic, and olive oil. Spoon pasta mixture (about 1 1/4 cups) into the center of each packet. 
  3. Squeeze lemon wedge over pasta before adding the lemon to the packet. Spoon goat cheese into the packet.
  4. Bring long edges of foil together, then roll it up to secure it. Roll edges of the packet to form a closed space (do not squeeze out all of the air).
  5. Reduce grill heat to low, then place packets on the grill. Cook for 10-12 minutes, shaking packets halfway through cooking.
  6. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
