Creamy Pasta Alfredo with Spinach, Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Creamy Pasta Alfredo with Spinach, Tomatoes and Mushrooms | www.thatwasvegan.com

This is an incredibly easy, really delicious pasta dish my friend Shawna shared with me. Rich, creamy Alfredo sauce (a’ la Happy Herbivore!), combined with tons of healthy veggies… does it get any better than that? We had leftovers, and they held up really well in the fridge for a couple of days. You know how dishes like this are- the flavors actually start to get better? Total yum! And it’s ridiculously easy, using a variety of convenience foods. No, this isn’t generally how I cook, but when you need to get dinner on the table (or on your lap in front of the TV) fast, this recipe is a life saver. The only part that takes any effort is the Alfredo sauce, and even that is done in under 15 minutes.

This was my first Vegan Alfredo Adventure, and I was really happy with how it turned out. The only adjustment I made to Lindsay’s recipe was to add salt. Oh, and I also used regular AP flour because I didn’t have any pastry flour on hand.

Ingredients
  1. TWO batches of Happy Herbivore's Instant Vegan Alfredo Sauce (just the sauce, not the pasta!)
  2. 1 12oz can diced Italian seasoned tomatoes
  3. 4 oz sliced button mushrooms
  4. 10-12 oz frozen cut leaf spinach, thawed and well drained
  5. 4-5 cups pasta, cooked
  6. S&P to taste
Instructions
  1. Prepare the alfredo sauce. Gently stir in the tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach and pasta, then taste-test and add S&P as needed. Serve warm.
Notes
  1. When making the HH alfredo, I always add about a 1/2 teaspoon or more of salt. I also use AP flour.

    Okay. Now I know what’s for din-din tonite! I have picked this cookbook up several times, only to walk away thinking I’d remember a recipe I thought I’d try first! I now think I MUST have this cookbook. But for sure, am making this sauce! Yum. . . Yum!

    Mmmm this looks so good- creamy sauce and carbs with a bunch of veggies, what’s not to love!

    I’ve made vegan alfreo sauce beofre but it called for soaked raw cashews. It was good, but I bet this stays nice and creamy because of the tofu. I’ll have to pass on the shrooms tho :)
