2 cups pasta --- whichever is your favorite
1 can diced tomatoes --- ones with garlic, oregano, or basil add a lot
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic (more if you're a huge fan!)
1/4 cup textured vegetable protein
1. Boil water and add pasta.
2. Put olive oil in a frying pan and heat to medium. Add minced/pressed garlic and stir a bit.
3. Blend can of tomatoes and the liquid from the can in a blender. Add these to the pan with the garlic and oil. Add in textured vegetable protein and stir. Let it bubble a bit and continue stirring so it does not burn.
4. Drain pasta when its made to your texture. Combine with the yummy sauce.
Add other vegetables you enjoy during the step 3 if you so desire.
