Yes, you read that correctly, taco flavored goodness served atop pasta! WINNER!
- 1 16oz box pasta, we used rigatoni (cooked according to package)
- 1 cup TVP (textured vegetable protein) (Bob’s Redmill, reconstituted using package directions)
- 1 14 oz can crushed tomatoes
- 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 4 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed 1/2″cubes
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 2 cups water (or enough to submerge the squash)
- lettuce/spinach, shredded
- grape tomatoes, halved
Add tomatoes, black beans, squash, seasoning, and water to a large saute pan or pot; bring to a simmer, cover, and simmer until squash is tender, 20-30 minutes. Adjust consistency by adding water or removing lid to reduce the liquid.
- Serve on pasta with toppings.
