You’ll love my Creamy Spinach and Mushroom Pasta. Mushrooms, spinach and veggies simmered in a flavourful cheesy, creamy Italian tomato sauce. Served on a bed of penne pasta. Simple ingredients, ready in 30 minutes. Easy, vegan, healthy and delicious!
This mushroom and spinach pasta rocks! Made with canned tomatoes, dried herbs and spices, vegan cream cheese and of course the veggies. Outstanding flavours with little effort! That’s my kinda dinner! I’m a huge fan of pasta and mushrooms anytime!
The vegan pasta sauce for this recipe is a play on my easy vegan spaghetti which I haven’t posted yet lol! You’ll love it?
The family loves this penne pasta dish but the grandkids aren’t to fond of the tomato chunks or the spinach so they work their way around it, little stinkers❤️
You could pulse the diced tomatoes in the food processor first so the sauce is not so chunky, if you prefer. I personally love the texture and flavour of the diced tomatoes as is for this recipe. So whatever floats your boat, right!
How to make Spinach and Mushroom Pasta:
Cook the Penne pasta or pasta of choice according to package directions, drain, don't rinse. Toss with a little oil and set aside.
While pasta is cooking preheat a large non stick skillet to medium high heat. Add the oil, onions, celery and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes, the onions should be browning and softening.
Add the mushrooms and fry for 3-5 minutes, until the mushrooms start to brown.
Turn the heat to medium and add the rest of ingredients except the spinach and pasta. Bring the sauce to a simmer on medium heat and cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Stir in the spinach and cook for 1 more minute.
Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper if necessary. Serve over penne pasta and Enjoy with some Garlic Bread!
I like to serve the pasta on individual plates and top with sauce.
This recipe will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days and the pasta and sauce should be stored separately for best results when reheating.The sauce freezes well.
