Instructions Checklist
  • Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.

  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan heat oil over medium. Add onion and bell pepper; cook 5 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally. Add meatless chicken; heat through.

  • Stir in pasta sauce, half of the cheese, and the pepper sauce. Bring to simmering. Add cooked pasta; toss to coat. Serve pasta topped with carrot, celery, and remaining cheese.

What We Used:

We used Quorn Meatless Fillets in this recipe. The chicken substitute contains egg whites, so it isn't suitable for vegans. It's 83% mycoprotein which is made by fermenting a specific fungus. Producing mycoprotein uses 90 percent less land and water than animal sources.
