Here is a pasta sauce recipe that one of my friends, Nick Verrastro, invented. To me it is just plain comfort food.
1 cherry pepper or a handful of jalapenos seeded and diced
2 diced tomatoes
1 box of sunshine burgers (these are GF soy free veggie burgers!)
Marinara sauce – most of a jar
1 1/2 – 2 cups of nutritional yeast
non-dairy milk or cream
Sautée the chopped onion with the cherry pepper. Add 2 diced tomatoes. Break up the sunshine burgers and add them. Add vodka (if using) and allow to boil off for a while. Add marinara sauce and nutritional yeast. Simmer until sunshine burger is minimal and the sauce is creamy. Add some vegan creamer or rice/almond milk. Salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over pasta for a hearty diner.
