Lady and the Prince Pasta

Like we learned at the movies, nothing says love like a big, steaming plate of spaghetti and meatballs. But, when this dish at a leading Italian restaurant packs in a whopping 2,430 calories, 128g of fat, 5,290mg of sodium and 207g of carbs (58 POINTS) loving this �tramp� of a dish isn�t worth the nutritional price. So how can we bring back that loving feeling? With this simple, healthy, colorful and tasty version that�s sure to be a hit�it�s amor�!
