Updated: Apr 19

Hi There! Welcome to this awesome pasta recipe, where I'll tell you exactly how to make delicious, vegan/gluten free pasta dinner recipe, high in protein (about 18g per serving, makes 4 servings) so you can BULK UP!


Not why you're here? Fair enough. That's not why I made it lol... BUT, if you're concerned with protein and want a dliciously vegan way to improve on that macro, you're in the right spot.


Some photos of what you'll end up with: 😋🍽💚

SOME TIPS UP FRONT:

  1. You'll want to use Lentil Pasta (we like penne style), because it gives you a ton of protein and actually has the best texture (in my opinion) of all the GF pasta options. Yes. I've tried ALL of them.

  2. Use a vegan meat you enjoy. We like Beyond, not everyone does. You can use Soy Curls too, and btw here's how to cook those:



THAT IS ALL! HERE ARE THE INGREDIENTS AND STEPS:


INGREDIENTS


Fresh/Frozen Veg:

1 cup chopped onions 1 tbs minced garlic

1 cup chopped mushrooms

1 cup chopped bell pepper 1 cup frozen spinach

680 ml tomato sauce

1 tsp basil

1 tsp rosemary

1/2 cup artichoke hearts


Oil:

2 tbsp of your favorite high temp (We use safflower)


Vegan Meat:

4 oz vegan meat


Pasta: 1 box (8 oz) red lentil penne pasta


Vegan Cheese:

Handfull of your favorite, pre shredded or shredded from block (Daiya, etc)


STEPS (Video at the Bottom)


Make Sauce:

  2. Let simmer and stir for 5-10 minutes, or until onion starts to turn translucent (that's a fun word :)

  3. Next add: Mushrooms, Bell peppers, Vegan meat.

  4. Simmer and stir occasionally until vegan meat is about cooked.

  5. Add: Spinach, Tomato sauce, Artichokes, Basil, Rosemary.

  6. Simmer on Medium Heat for about 10 minutes.

  7. Now let's start the pasta.


Make Pasta:

  3. After cooked, dump in strainer and run cold water over it (to stop from cooking).
