Spaghetti and Meatballs

What you need: 

1 pound of tofu or package of Gimme Lean sausage flavor
parsley
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
lemon juice
pepper
lots of garlic, best crushed and finely diced but can be powdered
bread crumbs
(optional) fake vegan parmesan cheese - sold at most health food stores
can of tomato sauce or your favorite spaghetti sauce
spaghetti or other pasta
olive oil

What you do: 

Get a big mixing bowl and crumble 1 lb of drained tofu or Gimme Lean sausage flavor. Finely chop 1/2 cup of walnuts and add to mix. Stir well, adding liberal amounts of parsley (I add half a spice container), pepper, lots of garlic (powdered or if fresh, I use several cloves), 1/4 -1/3 cup of vegan bread crumbs, 1/2 container of fake parmesan cheese (optional) and 1/3 cup lemon juice. Mix so that everything is well distributed. Roll into medium sized balls (should make about 15 balls). Heat olive oil in large skillet or wok until very hot. Add meatballs and and brown well, adding powdered garlic and pepper as you toss them in the olive oil. When they are very well browned (5-10 minutes), pour can of spaghetti sauce or tomato sauce over the meatballs. If just tomato sauce, add some oregano and basil. Cook for 1 minute over medium heat, and serve over freshly cooked spaghetti or other pasta.
