My family and I have started practicing “Meatless Monday” recently as part of our commitment to better health in 2019.

Using fresh ingredients, I had a delicious meal on the table in less than 30 minutes!

- 1 small yellow onion
- 2 cups fresh mushrooms

Check the store locator to find your nearest retailer that carries Modern Table Pasta.
Begin by washing the produce and getting it ready to cook. Core and remove seeds and ribs from bell peppers. Dice into small chunks. Wash and remove mushroom stems and slice lengthwise. Set aside. Remove outer layer of onion and dice the same size as your bell peppers.
Pro tip: When slicing onion, keep your mouth closed and breathe only through your nose in order to avoid eyes burning. 🙂
Put 3 tablespoons of olive oil into a deep pan and turn to medium-high heat. Add in peppers and onions and let sauté until peppers begin to brown and onions start to become soft and translucent.
In another pan, bring water to boil for your Modern Table® protein pasta. Add an additional tablespoon of olive oil to water and turn on high heat.
Add in garlic, basil, and oregano. Lower heat to medium and let cook down, stirring often to prevent scorching. Once all vegetables are soft, add in one can of tomato paste and a cup of warm water. Stir together gently until paste has dissolved.
Adjust heat to low and add in fresh mushrooms. Stir well and let vegetable the spaghetti sauce simmer on low while you prepare your Modern Table® protein pasta.
By now, your water should be boiling. Add in the Modern Table® Rotini and boil for 8-9 minutes. Remove from heat and drain with a colander.
Check on your Vegetable Spaghetti Sauce. If you want it a bit thinner, consider adding some of the water from the pasta to the sauce.
While hot, put Modern Table® protein pasta in your favorite bowl and load with Vegetable Spaghetti Sauce! Enjoy!
One of my favorite parts about this meal is that it was terrific fresh… and even better the next day! This is perfect for my weekly meal prep! It would also be great to make for new moms, new neighbors, or just a dinner party with friends.
I simply divided my pasta and vegetable spaghetti sauce into airtight containers and put in the fridge. To reheat, cover with a damp paper towel and heat in 30 second increments until the desired temperature.
Unlike other plant protein pasta that I have tried, Modern Table® holds its texture even after refrigerating and reheating.
Modern Table® Gluten-free, Complete Plant-Protein Pasta made our Meatless Monday Vegetable Spaghetti easy and delicious and will most definitely be a part of other meals throughout the week.
