Simple Quinou Spaghetti

Another meal low in nutritional density to sooth my slowly subsiding hang over.  I ate WAY too much of it and am totally stuffed!  Spaghetti is like the king of comfort food, it's full of carbs, rich sauce and in my version tons of processed soy meat.  I don't even know what kind of soy meat I used because my dad gave it to me to try from Costco, yes, Costco has some kind of mystery soy meat (yeah for Costco!).  It was ok, but I have had better, I like Gimme Lean soy meat personally.  This is a real easy classic recipe for spaghetti and besides the quinou pasta its nothing fancy.  I personally despise  bottled pasta sauce and highly recommend you try making your own, it is super easy and once you get the hang of it you can pretty much do anything to it.  You can start off with my simple version below and then go from there, you can add bell pepper, mushrooms, basil... whatever you like.  Give it a go...

Simple Spaghetti

2 cans of canned spaghetti sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion chopped
6 cloves of minced garlic
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 package soy "meat"
1 package of quinou pasta
salt and pepper

1. Bring a large pot of water to boil for the pasta, salt liberally.

2.  Heat large saucepan on medium heat and add olive oil.  Once pan is hot add onions and saute for 4-5 minutes until slightly trancluscent and add the garlic.  Cook garlic until just fragrant and add the soy "meat" to the onion mixture as per directions on package.  Once "meat" is cooked add the tomato sauce and Italian seasoning, turn to low, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes.  While sauce is simmering add pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook per directions on package. 

3.  When pasta is done add the sauce to the pasta and top with a little parma or nutritional yeast if you like and your goo to go.
