Chop an onion, and slice 1/2 cup of celery. Sauté these in some vegetable oil. Add some garlic powder. Cook until the onions and celery are soft. While the vegetables are cooking, start heating a big pot of water to boiling.
Add your preferred meatless spaghetti sauce and a can of cooked garbanzo beans for added protein. Add a can of chopped tomatoes with garlic and onion flavoring. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of oregano and a bay leaf. Bring the water to a boil. Then, reduce the heat to allow it to simmer for 10 minutes. Add spaghetti noodles to the boiling water. Salt the noodle water heavily.
When the sauce is hot and the noodles are cooked to al dente, it is time to serve. Drain the spaghetti noodles in a colander, and place them on a serving plate. Remove the bay leaf, and serve the spaghetti sauce over the cooked spaghetti noodles. Top with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
