This cheezy vegan chorizo pasta bake comes together in a pinch and is rich, creamy, and a little bit spicy.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-6
  • 12 oz fusilli or elbow macaroni
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 12-oz package Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo
  • 1 10 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup Trader Joe's Vegan Mozzarella Style Shreds
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cook the pasta according to the package directions, drain.
  3. Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  4. When the onion starts to brown, add the chorizo. Cook for a few minutes then stir in the spinach, spices, and tomato sauce to heat through.
  5. Stir the pasta and ¾ cup of the mozzarella into the chorizo sauce mixture.
  6. Transfer to a 2.5 quart baking dish, sprinkle the remaining mozzarella over the top. Bake about 30 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
Note--I've added no salt as the chorizo is plenty salty. However, feel free to add salt and pepper to taste.
