Vegan, gluten-free, and low-calorie, this version of Bolognese is the perfect plant-based swap for the traditional version.

- 1 box (12 ounces) ZENB Rotini Pasta made from 100% Yellow Peas, uncooked
Heat oil in a large heavy bottom pot on medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, salt & pepper. Cook 20 minutes stirring frequently, until browned. Add onions, carrots, celery and red pepper; cook 8-10 minutes until vegetables are softened.2.
Stir in ZENB Sauce and oregano. Cook 6-8 minutes while scraping brown bits from bottom of pan. Reduce heat to low. Simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce is slightly thickened.3.
Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed on package; drain. Add pasta to sauce; mix gently until well combined.
Reconstitute 1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms in 1/2 cup of hot water for an extra flavor boost. Finely chop the reconstituted mushrooms before adding with the soaking liquid to the pot with the other vegetables.
Keep this dish vegan by sprinkling with vegan Parmesan style topping or nutritional yeast flakes before serving.
