Last night I made vegan cavatappi pasta with a shiitake tomato sauce. This was the first time I made this dish. It was really good.
Saute an onion with olive oil, salt, and some oregano
Add frozen/fresh peas and garlic after onion is translucent
Turn heat down to medium and add the shiitakes(you will kill the flavor if heat is too high)
After 5 minutes add 1 can of diced tomatoes. Let simmer while noodles cook
Tomatoes will start to break down after 10 minutes ish
Add 1/2 cup water and 1 cup plant-based meat substitute
When noodles are done mix in sauce and let sit with lid on for 5 minutes
I added nutritional yeast as a parmesan cheese replacement
I know it looks messy, but it was really good, I promise.
