Taco Bolognese

Yes, you read that correct 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)
  • avocado
  • lettuce/spinach, shredded
  • grape tomatoes, halved
  1. 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.

  2. Serve on pasta with toppings.
