I don't know what it is, but I've been craving pasta like mad lately. I can't get enough! I decided to give this recipe a try (with some modifications) and man, oh man... it was good. Martin & I kept commenting between mouthfuls, "it's so simple, but wow, is it good!" Haha, can you tell I'm very enthusiastic about this dish?! ;) Here are the details. Enjoy!
3 cloves garlic
1 large onion, diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 green pepper, diced
400g firm tofu
1/3 jar of vegetarian pasta sauce
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried marjoram
1/2 tsp chili flakes
1/4 cup white aged cheddar
2 tbsp chopped green onion
400g pasta (I used gluten-free)
In a medium sized saucepan, saute crushed garlic and chopped onion in olive oil. When slightly golden, add green pepper (I used a yellow one) and cook for a few minutes longer. Crumble your tofu and add to mixture. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow any liquid to boil away, or you can drain it. Lastly, add your tomato sauce, dried seasonings and simmer for another 5 minutes.
Cook your pasta, then top with sauce. Garnish with cheddar, green onions, and salt & pepper to taste. Yum!
