Sending you into the weekend with one of those meal starter ideas that I keep mentioning this month. This easy vegan sausage mushroom marinara pasta isn’t a recipe (and I’m not sure that this share even constitutes a proper blog post!), but it’s one of the re-heatable dinners I’ve made most often for sustenance and comfort food during my DI. On the chance that one of you might come to enjoy it as much as I do, it’s worth writing down the process.
This meal definitely gets filed in the “semi-homemade” category. Within that, you’re encouraged to use any of the store-bought staples you like: your favorite marinara, your favorite vegan sausage (or you could use crumbled and sautéed tempeh, or cooked lentils), your pasta of choice (I used regular; go ahead and use gluten-free, bean pasta, whole grain—whatever suits you), and your favorite pasta topper. For me, that’s this walnut herb parm.
By the time the dish comes together, it’s filling, rich in plant-protein, packed with vegetables for nutritional heft, and—I think—pretty tasty for all of its simplicity. Here’s how I make it.
This may well be a lot less inspiring than many of you need, in which case don’t worry: I have another easy recipe planned for next week, but it’s a little more original than this one!
As I said, for those of you who might love this combination but not necessarily think to throw it together, I hope it’s a winning weeknight supper. Thanks for letting me share a low-key favorite with you.
And I’ll be back soon, for weekend reading.

Add good flavors and its look yummy. Your vegan sausage mushroom marinara pasta is perfect. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Gena! This looks great. Perhaps this should be obvious, but would you say this makes about 2 servings or? Trying to decide if I should double or not. Thanks!
Hi Vera! I recently updated my recipe plugin and some serving suggestions haven’t translated correctly yet. I’m sorry for the confusion! This serves 3-4, depending on appetite of course. So, if you’re serving 3-4 people, you likely don’t need to double 🙂
Great – thank you!
This is a great looking recipe! My wife would love it because of the broccoli, thank you!
Yum. I eat something like this each week! I like to add mushrooms too or whatever other veg I happen to have.
i love this recipe
