Easy Spinach and Mushroom Pasta

Everybody loves pasta, but gluten-free pasta can leave a lot to be desired. Whether it’s the texture or mouth feel, some pastas are a cut above the rest. After trying numerous types during these last two years, my absolute favorite is bright yellow box of Ronzoni Gluten Free 4 Grain pasta, a mix of white rice, brown rice, corn and quinoa. We used a Penne Rigate and Gardein crumbles to make this delicious recipe.

1 box of gluten free pasta
2 Tbsp. olive oil
10 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 6oz bag spinach, fresh or frozan
1 can diced tomatoes
1 jar gluten free pasta sauce
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
Gardein meat crumbles
OPTIONAL : Violife Parmesan


Cook pasta as instructed. Add olive oil to pan and heat on medium high. Add mushrooms and spinach. Saute until cooked about 5-7 minutes. Add can of diced tomatoes and stir. Add pasta sauce and mix. Add nutritional yeast. Add package of meat crumbles and stir all thoroughly. Once fully mixed, add pasta, mix together, season with salt and pepper and serve. Optionally, you can shave Vegan Parmesan onto dish.
