Ingredients

  • 1 pound penne pasta (cook until al dente)
  • 13 ounces vegan sausage (I used a package of Field Roast Mexican Chipotle, but you could use any vegan Italian sausage, crumbled or chopped fine)
  • 12 ounces cremini mushrooms (sliced)
  • 4 cups mixed greens (chopped)
  • 2 medium tomatoes (diced)
  • ½ cup almonds (soaked in 1 cup of water for at least 30 minutes then blended into a smooth paste. Use pumpkin seeds if nut-free)
  • Salt and ground pepper to taste
  • Juice and zest of a lemon
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the vegan sausage and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for about five minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms and some salt. Cook until the mushrooms soften. Add the tomatoes and mixed greens and stir until the greens wilt.
  • Add the mustard, lemon juice, and zest and mix well. Add the pasta. Stir to mix everything well. Add salt and ground black pepper to taste.
  • Add the almond paste and mix. Turn off the heat. Serve the pasta hot or at room temperature.
