We all love Pasta. How could we not love them? they are so healthy and tasty. I love almost all types of them with the right kind of cheese pairing and fresh farm produce. Bolognese sauce is often prepared with meat so tried to prepare some delicious wonder for all vegetarians out there.
This time I have chosen to pair the sauce with Fettuccine and Parmesan. Both are my absolute favourites.
Let's begin with the recipe
Vege Fettuccine Bolognese
Yield For 2-3 people
Total time : 0.5-1 hour
Olive oil, 2 tablespoon
Garlic, minced, 4-5 cloves
Onion, chopped, 1 medium
Tomato Puree, 1 cup
Mixed Italian Herbs, dried, 2 teaspoon
Tofu, scrambled, 2 cups
Fettuccine Pasta, 100 gms
Bring water to boil in a saucepan, add salt while boiling. Now add Pasta and let it simmer till its cooked "al dante" or cook as per instructions on the packet.
Reserve some pasta water for later use.
Drain Pasta and run some cold water over it to stop further cooking.
Coat with olive oil, spread and keep aside.
Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Heat olive oil in a pan, add garlic, saute till aromatic.
Add onions, cook till translucent, add Tomato puree.
Mix everything and let it simmer while covering it.
Season with salt, pepper and mixed Italian herbs.
Now add tofu. Mix everything properly and cook till tofu is well cooked and all the sauce is soaked into it.
Reserve half of the sauce for later use.
Add pasta water to the sauce left in the pan.
Let it cover and simmer. Now add pasta and coat well. If you like more saucy pasta, add pasta water to it.
Pasta is ready.
Plate it with reserved sauce, Parmesan cheese and cilantro.
You may use spaghetti if you are out of fettuccine.
If you are vegan, you may exclude Parmesan cheese.
For extra flavour may use butter, this one is more on the healthy side.
Use store-bought tomato puree or add tomato paste as well if you are using homemade tomato puree for great colour and flavour.
If you have fresh Italian herbs, you may use them.
