Hello everybody! I eat pasta a lot, no surprise there, but I recently remembered that I have never shared my absolute favorite pasta sauce. I am not joking when I say that I am eating this two times a week, on average.. This sauce is rich, easy and packed with veggies.

What you’ll need:

  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup of chopped spinach
  • 0.5  a cup of mushrooms
  • 0.5 a cup of finely minced soy chunks (optional)
  • Vegan parmesan, or nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • 0.25 a cup of veggie broth
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Your paste of choice

How to:

  1. Finely chop the onion and the garlic and add them to a pan along with *plenty* of olive oil, on medium heat. Let the onions brown for a few minutes.
  2. Add the finely chopped spinach, finely chopped mushrooms and parsley, along with the optional soy chunks, let the ingredients combine on medium heat for another few minutes.
  3. Add your tomato paste, veggie broth and canned chopped tomatoes and stir together.
  4. To add a bit of creaminess to the sauce, shred in some vegan cheese, and for more umami, add some nutritional yeast
  5. Now add your remaining herbs: basil, oregano, and shred in your nutmeg as well.
  6. In another pot, salt your pasta water and bring it to a boil. When the water is boiling add in your pasta and cook it until al dente.
  7. Pour the pasta water from your pasta, but add 0.25 cups of the pasta water to your sauce and keep it cooking for 5-7 minutes on low heat.
  8. For the best result, turn over your pasta in your sauce shortly before serving.
