Preparation time: 30 minutes
- 4 portions spaghetti (about 8 oz uncooked)
- 2 egg whites
- 4 tsp Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Garlic seasoning
- 1/4 cup reduced-fat Parmesan cheese, grated
- 4 portions chicken breast (about 1 lb)

- 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
- 3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
- 4 tbsp red wine (or chicken broth)
- Prepare spaghetti according to package directions.
- In a medium mixing bowl, lightly beat the egg whites. In a pie plate, combine the Mrs. Dash seasoning and Parmesan cheese.

- Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place chicken breasts in skillet, cover and cook for approximately 6 minutes. Turn and cook for 6 more minutes, until no longer pink in the center. Transfer the cooked chicken breasts to a plate; cover with foil to keep warm.
