I made a batch of whole grain spaghetti and it came out sticky ~ so I quickly added some olive oil and organic marinara sauce It tastes good but still STICKY

Any ideas for making it more appealing

Put it in a frying pan with a little water and more sauce (more water than sauce though) but only alittle at a time, cover and heat some more, but low & slow. Lift lid and stir around alittle a few times, cover & let low simmer til liquid is absorbed.
Unfortunately though, it may go from sticky/al dente, to overdone.
Sounds like you put too much pasta in not enough water, or didn't cook longer. Why the oil added with the sauce is another question too? This may prevent the pasta from absorbing additional liquid.

I have had this happen with whole grain pasta, and don't like it. Just toss it. Why bother to try to make it better?

I've seen Giada DeLaurentiis bake something like that up in a pie plate. Maybe with some eggs? I think it was called spaghetti pie.
We use leftover spaghetti with eggs, fried up in butter in a pan. Delicious!

BASMATI RICE will go good with your 22 pound turkey and your PANERA bread !!! ....Cherry, make sure you season the inside of the turkey. ......ALSO Cherry, make sure your pan of water is boiling hot underneath the turkey so the OVEN TEMP is not reduced by the pan of water.

ALSO, Cherry, you can preheat the oven at 450 degrees if you like since some refrigerators keep turkeys ALMOST as cold as a FREEZER !! ....

I haven't had that issue. However in future, spaghetti noodles need to be stirred occasionally as they cook to prevent clumping together.

Also, if it is sticky or starchy on the outside give it a quick rinse in cold water when you drain it. (Necessary for rice noodles)

Do you let the water come to a full roiling boil first before adding pasta? That and stirring a few times should prevent the stickiness.
