By now it seems that this is a customary dish of the vegan tradition. So I can’t leave it out ;) In a short time and with few ingredients, you‘ll manage to cook an excellent first course, which is able to convince even the most sceptics!
INGREDIENTS (to prepare a sauce for 3-4 people)
- Half of a red onion
- Half of a big carrot
- 300 gr of tomato sauce
- 120 gr – 150 gr of griddled seitan ( the one I used had vegetables too; grilled seitan is much more tasty but you can use the natural one too and you can find it in most supermarkets)
- Extra-virgin olive oil
Chop the onion and the carrot finely and then fry them lightly with a drop of oil; don’t wait too long before adding the chopped seitan. As soon as it gains flavour, add the tomato sauce and the parsley. I usually cook it for 15-20 minutes, controlling that it doesn’t get too dry, and then I salt and pepper it. Boil a pot of water and cook the pennette (they usually require 15 minutes). In the end, drain the pasta and add the sauce you’ve just prepared. Voilà! Do you miss the old\traditional pasta with Bolognese sauce yet?
