Today, we’re keeping things simple, easy, and super cozy because nothing screams comfort like a big plate of pasta! This recipe was actually developed because I hadn’t been feeling too good and my mom wanted to get some vegetables/food down me. This is what she came up with.
After one bite, I immediately started feeling better! I think soon after I made her write down everything she put in this… oops!
But it’s that good!
To be totally honest with you guys, I have been holding out on you with this. We’ve made it probably three or four times since and every bite had been just as good as the last.
how to make vegan spaghetti sauce
First, gather the ingredients.
Using a knife, gently cut the casing on the sausage and peel it off.
Now, in a medium sized pot, add olive oil and let get warm. Add the sausage and sauté for about 3 minutes.
Add in the mushrooms, celery, onion, bell pepper and cook for about 4 minutes.
Now, add the tomatoes and tomato sauce and let cook down for 30-40 minutes.
Serve over pasta, top with cheese and basil, and serve!
can this be frozen
Absolutely! Store the sauce in single size servings or in a large freezer safe bag! Reheating is also super easy. Place the frozen sauce into a pot, add a little bit of water, and let thaw over medium-low heat.
However, if you have leftovers mixed with pasta, just keep it in an airtight container and store in the fridge. It makes for a great lunch!
- The sauce is not only vegan/vegetarian but it’s also gluten-free, dairy-free, and low carb!
- You can actually use whatever pasta shape you want.
- This recipe freezes really well.
- You can use store-bought, but our Homemade Tomato Sauce is seriously the best for this!
