Pasta with Smoky Bacon Tempeh


Ingredients

  • 1 bag (16 oz) GF pasta (such as Tinkyada brown rice elbow pasta)

  • 1 package (6 oz) LightLife Tempeh Smoky Bacon (or homemade smoky tempeh)

  • 2 jars (25 oz each) Fat Free Marinara

  • 2 cups green peas, frozen

  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy yogurt (such as Kite Hill Unsweetened almond Yogurt), optional


Directions

  1. Place a large pasta pot filled with 4.5 quarts of water on the stove, cook on high until the water comes to a boil. Then empty the whole dry pasta bag into the pot and cook according to instructions (about 16 minutes) on medium high.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, place a large colander in the sink, cut tempeh into 1/2-inch pieces, open both marinara jars and prepare 2 cups of frozen green peas by rinsing them with warm water to defrost.

  3. When the pasta is cooked, pour it into the colander and leave it there.

  4. Place the empty pot back on the stove, immediately add the tempeh and cook it through for a couple of minutes.

  5. Then add the marinara sauce, the green peas and the cooked pasta.

  6. Mix everything together and add non-dairy yogurt, if you wish.

  7. Serve immediately with freshly ground black pepper.
