Pasta with Vegan Meatless Balls

11 Jun

Sunday is our day for relaxing and enjoying a good Italian Pasta DishImage

Sunday is our day for sitting down to a family tradition of a delicious Italian meal.  The only thing different is that  I prepare mine the vegatarian way.  I use vegan meatless balls, which you can find in the frozen food section of most supermarkets.
I make my tomato sauce in advance, and I keep it frozen in containers so I always have it on hand. Below is my recipe for tomato sauce.

Tomato Sauce 

4 garlic cloves chopped

1/2 cup chopped onion

3 tsp olive oil

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup water

2 cans tomato paste

3  28 oz cans tomato sauce

2 tsp basil

2 tsp parsley

2 tsp oregano

Heat large pot to medium and add oil, garlic, and chopped onion. Cook until golden, add tomato sauce and paste, mix until smooth, stir in 1 cup of water, oregano, basil, parsley and salt.  Bring to boil cover and simmer for 1 hour stirring occasionally.

Leftover sauce cool, and refrigerate or freeze.

  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions
  2. Prepare meatballs according to package directions ( I bake mine, with a coating of olive oil)
  3. Drain  pasta, cover with sauce, add meatless balls, coat evenly with sauce.
  4. Top with freshly grated parmesan, and basil.
