If You're Into This Kind of Thing.


Ho, ho, ho...

Here is the bastard child of my 'Manwich Delight' and 'Dan's Saturday Night Special'... proceed with caution.

No, really, it's good. If you're into this kind of thing. Are my midwestern roots showing?

1 C elbow pasta
1/2 C TVP
1 can corn, drained
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T oil
1 t salt

1 can tomatoes, undrained
1/4 C nutritional yeast
2 T sugar
1 T HP sauce
1 t salt
1 t garlic granules
1/2 t prepared mustard
4 green olives (optional, I have been weirdly throwing olives into all my sauces lately... it's a compulsion)

Boil your pasta, along with the TVP. Stir fairly regularly because the TVP sticks.

Blend up the sauce ingredients.

Saute the onion and garlic, then add the sauce and corn and mix well. Simmer while your pasta and TVP boil.

Mix in the TVP and pasta and simmer until the sauce is thick.
