It’s been a little while since I posted a new recipe on the blog.. Creating my online vegan cooking school has taken most of time these past few months – it’s been fun to create it but also very intense!

I am happy to have time once again to create new recipes!

This recipe is a great way to use up veggies you have in the fridge/freezer – check out the notes below for substitutions and topping ideas!

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

Got other veggies you want to use up in the fridge/freezer? You can top this dish with steamed broccoli, sautéed mushrooms or bell peppers.

If the sauce looks too runny; once you mix the pasta with the sauce, set it aside to allow the pasta to soak some of the sauce, then heat up and serve.
