Tips

Spice to taste! You can use any type of pasta you would like!


Directions

1. Cook pasta as directed.
2. While pasta is cooking, sauté mushrooms and onions over medium heat until onions are translucent and mushrooms are soft. Reduce heat, add garlic and spinach. Continue to sauté until spinach is wilted. Once spinach is wilted, add tomatoes and cook for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and place on the side.
3. In small pot, melt non dairy margarine over low heat, then add flour. Stir constantly, until smooth. Add non dairy milk and continuously stir.
4. When sauce begins to bubble (it will), cook for 1 more minute after bubbling begins while continuing to stir. Stir in mushroom, spinach, tomato mixture until thoroughly heated. Spice sauce to taste.
