If you're still reeling from your holiday feasting, you are not alone. Overindulging in mashed potatoes, stuffing and pumpkin pie is likely to happen. So if you're looking for something to separate yourself from your holiday feast, this week's Meatless Monday is just for you. This dish of Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Leeks and Hazelnuts (pictured above) from Food Network Magazine serves as a nice contrast to those heavy Thanksgiving staples.

This recipe is full flavored, through calls for only a few simple ingredients of whole-wheat spaghetti, leeks, radicchio, hazelnuts, balsamic vinegar, sugar, and Italian cheeses like fontina or Taleggio. And are you still too tired to prepare a big meal after your Thanksgiving feasting? This pasta dish takes only 35 minutes to both cook and prepare.
