Rich Vegan Rasta Pasta

I always have been an avid pasta lover. Over the past two years this has easily become a top three favorite. Deeply embedded in my Jamaican roots, I’ll always vouch for this one.

This is an intermediate level recipe, great dinner recipe for those who want to add a new meal to their culinary bag. This one is definitely a hit!

Recipe

2 cups of bell peppers sliced ( I used red, yellow & green)

1 cup of plant based sausage sliced in thick pieces

1/2 cup of chopped yellow onions

1/2 tbs of minced garlic

1/2 tbs of wet jerk seasoning

1/2 cup of chopped bella mushrooms

1 jar of coconut milk

1 box of penne pasta

2 tbs of grapeseed oil

1/2 cup of nutritional yeast

1/2 tbs of curry powder

seasoning blend (parsley, himalayan salt, black pepper, paprika, old bay seasoning 1/2 tbs of each)

Instructions

1. Sauté onions & garlic until translucent.

2. Add curry powder & mushrooms, sauté until curry is cooked & fragrant (important since its a raw spice).

3. Add pasta to boiling water & cook for 10 mins until al dente (pasta should have a slight firmness but not too soft).

4. Add bell peppers, jerk seasoning & plant based sausage to pan. Saute 4-5 mins. Veggies should be soft but & sausage tender.

5. Add coconut milk to pan & let simmer on low heat for 5-7 mins.

6. Once the sauce has thickened, add nutritional yeast & seasonings at the end.

7. Stir everything thoroughly & add in pasta.

8. (Optional) Roast asparagus in oven & serve with the pasta.

9. Plate up eat & enjoy!
