This easy Vegan Spaghetti has a meaty and delicious sauce that comes together in minutes and simmers while your pasta cooks. Great for kids and picky eaters, this classic spaghetti recipe is perfect for busy weeknights!
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. When the water starts to boil, add the spaghetti and cook for 7 to 9 minutes (or as directed on the package) until the spaghetti is al dente.
While you are bringing the water to a boil, add your sauce, ¾ cup water, TVP, and other seasonings to a medium pot. Heat over medium heat until the sauce starts to simmer. Turn the heat down to low and cook (covered) for 10 to 15 minutes, or until your pasta is done.
Drain the pasta. Add the sauce and mix to combine. Serve with vegan parmesan, red pepper flakes, and fresh basil. Enoy!
You can use any type of pasta. I usually serve it with whole wheat spaghetti.
I realize this recipe is comically easy, but it's my #1 backup meal. I always have the ingredients on hand for days when I'm not in the mood to cook! Or I plan it for days when I know I won't have a lot of time to cook (since there's no prep work and it comes together in just 20 minutes).
