Last night I was starving and decided to whip some ingredients together that I needed to get rid of before they went bad. I had some parley, asparagus and garlic. That is how veggie pasta marinara was born!
Pappardelle noodles (wide past noodles) 1 clump about 200 calories
1 jar of your favorite chunky marinara sauce
2 cloves of garlic
½ cup of fresh parley (make sure its fresh)
¾ cup of chopped asparagus
4 oz of texturized soy protien or Gimmie Lean veggie sausage
2 table spoon of olive oil
In a pot boil your papardelle noodles till tender and set to the side.
In a sauce pan heat up your olive oil. Add your chopped garlic (try smashing the chopped pieces of garlic with a fork it releases the aroma). Add your veggie sausage to the pan and let cook for a few minutes. Then add your asparagus and parsley, saute for 6 to 8 minutes until all ingredients are tender and the sausage is brown. Finally add in your chunky marinara sauces.
Pour sauce over noodles then eat.
Happy Eating! Let me know how it comes out!
