Ingredients:

1 pound thin Spaghetti
1 tablespoon Olive oil
1 small Onion, chopped
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1 medium red bell Pepper, diced
1 tablespoon whole wheat Flour
1 1/2 cups fat-free Milk
3 cups chopped fresh Spinach
1 teaspoon dried Italian herb mix
1/2 cup liquid egg substitute or 2 Egg whites
