I always wanted to eat spaghetti with meatballs. I will not do it, because I do not eat meat. Option with wheat meatballs sounds more better. Plus vegan Parmesan cheese is just delicious.
I have not eaten any pasta for a while. Today’s sauce is inspired Leanne Campbell recipe ” The China Study cookbook”. Originally it calls pasta in marinara sauce. I have changed it. I switched some ingredients as I like it and I think that it still tastes delicious. Although vegan Parmesan cheese is from ” The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition ” Julieanna Hever. This meal was filled with my favorite wheat meatballs. As I said I always wanted to eat it this way. I have never eaten them in any reastaurant, at my friends or mine house. This is why I decided to make it by myself. To be honest it took me some time to make a decision which grain or groat I will use. Because the best burgers which I have done are made of wheat, this is why i choose it. Personally I just adore its texture after baking. It is super thick and sticky, almost like a minced meat. After tossing baked balls on pan with pasta, I could not wait to eat it in few moments. As always I could not make good photos, because I was so hungry. It looked really appetizingly.
