While we were in Colorado visiting Lauren we ate a little healthier than we normally do. Actually, during our entire stay, we only had a couple meals that weren’t vegetarian. Since we’ve been back 90% of our meals that I’ve made here at home have been vegetarian. For no reason other than it’s easy, cheaper, and healthy. We aren’t big meat eaters, so it really isn’t that big of a change.
Tonight, I decided to experiment a little. I made a vegan pasta dish with meatless “meat” and it turned out amazing.
The only thing Mitchell noticed was the noodles not being the “normal” noodle. These were pretty good in my opinion! I used the brand Ancient Harvest, and their pasta was on sale, so I only paid $2.50 for the box, which for gluten free is super cheap! I probably should have grabbed a couple other boxes, but I wasn’t sure how the texture would be. Really truly there wasn’t much difference, though I know picky people would notice the difference.
Next, I used the Smart Ground Original. This stuff, was SO delicious! The texture was spot on, and it added great flavor. I will definitely be buying their products again!
first I boiled the noodles, and strained them. Sat them aside. Then, I sautéd the meat with some garlic, and spinach, once it was heated and the spinach had the right amount of wilting, I added the sauce, You can use whatever pasta sauce you prefer, mine was just a classic tomato sauce. heat, add the noodles and voila! Ready to consume!
