Recipe

  • 8 ounces medium shell pasta
  • 1/ 4 cup vegan butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/ 2 cups non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce, or 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 1/ 2 cups broccoli, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/ 2 cups mushrooms, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/ 3 cup vegan cheese, grated, optional

Method

  • Step 1

    Cook pasta for about 5 minutes, or half the time on the package directions, and drain.

  • Step 2

    Heat a pot on medium heat. Once hot, add the butter and flour and whisk until a thick paste has been formed.

  • Step 3

    Increase the heat to medium-high and add cooked pasta, milk, tomato sauce, garlic, broccoli, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring the entire time. You do not want it to turn into a rolling boil, this sauce can easily burn.

  • Step 4

    Lower the heat to medium-low and add the mushrooms. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the mushrooms are soft.

  • Step 5

    Take pasta off the heat. Sprinkle with vegan parmesan, divide in bowls and eat.
