Helpful hints

  • Top with 1/4 cup delicious Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Sauce from the recipe collection.
  • Substitute refined spaghetti for whole wheat if preferred.
  • Note to dietitians:  This is a great recipe idea to serve at food sampling events. Double the recipe and cook in an electric skillet. Pre-cook/prep the pasta and sauce. Place a basil plant on the table for aroma and to demonstrate use of fresh herbs.

Spaghetti-Basil Frittata

This looks delicious, but I understood we were to only use white flour. Is that true? I haven't made this recipe yet, but it looks delicious. I was required to make a rating. Dietitian comment: Today's kidney diet does include whole grains because they provide fiber and are a healthier choice compared to many refined grains. Ask your dietitian for guidance on your individualized diet plan.

Linda39 says she uses Daiya Dairy-Free Cheese. That sounds good. I will try to find some equivalent locally. Is Liquid Egg Substitute okay to use in DaVita's recipes? I haven't tried this recipe yet so I can't rate it. Some liquid egg products have phosphate additives so compare brands to see if there is one without the additives. You can also make it with egg whites if cholesterol is a concern.

Using Liquid Egg Substitute and Daiya Dairy-Free Cheese will drop the phosphorus level significantly. Daiya Mozzarella Cheese 2 oz is 15 phosphorus and 15 potassium and is quite good. And it melts!

Great, But I don't use cheese. Phosphorus is high at 279 mg.
