It starts with preparing the spaghetti, which in this recipe, is used already cooked. Do not over cook spaghetti. It is a high carbohydrate food and so diabetics and others concerned about their glycemic index need to cook their pasta only to el dente; that is, until the pasta is barely cooked. That keeps the spaghetti, a high carbohydrate food, but lower on the glycemic index, from being absorbed in to the body too quickly and causing a sugar spike. Portion control is also another issue, especially for diabetics. So cook that pasta only until it is barely tender, or el dente. The rest of the ingredients come together easily as they should. Be sure to include the garlic, listed on the recipe as optional. Garlic is an amazingly good food to eat.
