I've been taking a couple hours each week to clean sections of my room. I'm not a hoarder, but I'm definitely on the boarder. I don't like to throw out objects with sentiment or anything "I might use in the next year or two". So I just took time to de-clutter and toss everything I haven't used since I was in grade school.
Where as it used to be so traumatizing to throw everything away, it now feels cleansing.
I'm starting to love the concept of minimalism and I hope that by the end of the summer, I'll have enough space in my bedroom to do a cartwheel..or something of that nature.
Anyway, this recipe is for those vegetarians who miss their signature meat dishes. When I was around 10-15 years of age, every time we'd go out, I'd order pasta bolognese. Oh man, that stuff was crack. So this recipe substitutes the meat for a soy burger (Boca) and it brought back so many wonderful memories. Enjoy!
- whole wheat spaghetti
- 1 boca burger
- a handful of cut carrots, bell peppers, onions, and any other vegetable of your choice (my family makes a giant salad for appetizer every night so I just threw in the veggies from that).
- delish tomato sauce
- Boil the pasta by the directions on the box.
- Take out a frying pan and put a tbsp. of olive oil and heat on medium.
- When hot, drop on the boca burger and cook for a few minutes on each side. Don't worry about defrosting the burger.
- Add in the veggies and with stirring utensil, chop up the burger into bite sizes.
- Add in the tomato sauce, heat until hot.
- Put your warm pasta in a eating bowl and pile on the yummy "bolognese". Add parmesan cheese if that really gets you off. Serve.
