Creamy Sausage, Mushroom, Olive and Tomato Spinach Pasta Spirals



Creamy Sausage, Mushroom, Olive and Tomato Spinach Pasta Spirals



First things first, if you haven't tried the 'Seeds of Change' pasta spirals, you simply must!

A lot of people are surprised to learn that there are just as many vegan pasta products on the market as non-vegan egg pasta. And the same can be said for noodles too! Since I first posted this dish on my Instagram, I have been asked by rather a lot of my friends and followers to post the recipe; and many of them have asked me to cook it for them. (I now keep a regular stock of these ingredients for impromptu visits or quick mid-week feasts). 




 If you're new to the vegan life (welcome), have been vegan for some time (keep up the good work), or perhaps you have one coming for dinner, this dish is for you. Basically, what I am saying to you, is that whoever you are, vegan, or not, get this dish into your basic  weekly, bi-weekly or monthly meal repertoire.

The recipe takes 15 minutes to make and I never see leftovers on the plate! In fact, I  am always conscious to make a little extra, as my husband likes a second helping and it's great for lunch the next day! Even my 1 year old niece loves it.

If you dislike vegan sausages, mushrooms or olives, just omit that ingredient, it works just as well without either of these elements!

 Ingredients
- 250/500g Seeds of Change Organic Spinach Trottole
- 3 Vegan sausages (I use Cauldron or Linda McCartney) sliced or cut into chunks
- 1 White onions - diced
- 150g mushrooms diced small
- 2 large tomatoes chopped into large chunks
- 1 tablespoon vegan cream cheese (I use Bute Isand Foods 'Sheese')
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped finely
- 1 dessert spoon of tomato puree
- 10 green olives
- 1 dessert spoon of vegan butter
- Black pepper and salt 
- Coconut Oil
- 1 cup of filtered water




Main Ingredients before cooking 



Method
- Fill a saucepan with filtered water and bring to the boil
- Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a frying pan until melted
- Place the onions, garlic and mushrooms into the pan of hot oil and begin to soften them
- Add in the sliced sausages and brown them
- Whilst they are browning, pour the pasta into the saucepan of water and turn the heat onto medium to cook gently while you finish the (gorgeous, delicious) sauce
- When the sausages have begun to catch and brown around the edges, add in the tomato puree and tomato chunks
- Stir and coat the ingredients in the tomato puree and turn onto a low heat setting 
- Pour in a little of the water from the pasta to create a sauce
- Add the vegan butter a simmer gently until the tomatoes have begun to break down -now add in the vegan cream cheese and stir thoroughly. If this is too thick, add in some of your filtered water to loosen it up
- Check the pasta - when it is al-dente (with a slight bite to it) to soft, drain the pasta and leave to settle in the drainer until the water has completely drained away 
-  When the sauce has thickened and the tomatoes are soft and breaking down, add the olives and season with salt and pepper
- Now carefully - transfer the pasta into the sauce and stir it until the pasta is completely coated and serve


Serving Suggestions

- You can serve this with a rocket salad (as pictured above). I toss the rocket leaves in olive oil and black pepper and plonk it (technical term) on top of a big bowl of pasta, it's simple and delicious
