Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) package dried pasta of choice
  • 1/2 - 1 white or yellow onion, sliced roughly
  • 2-3 cups mushrooms (any variety), sliced roughly
  • 2-4 veggie sausage links, sliced 
  • 1 (16-ounce) can Cream of Mushroom
  • 1 cup of milk or non-dairy milk of choice
  • 3-4 cups of dark greens of choice like spinach, chopped kale, chopped dandelion greens

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions
  2. Saute onions and mushrooms in a large saute pan until softened - about 2-5 minutes.
  3. Stir in veggie sausage links and cook for a few minutes - you can cook until they're slightly crispy or very crispy - about 3-7 minutes. 
  4. Pour in cream of mushroom and stir to combine. 
  5. Pour milk into mixture. We like to pour the milk into the empty cream of mushroom can and swish around to get as much of the mixture. 
  6. Let cook for 2-3 minutes to incorporate. 
  7. Add in greens and stir to combine for 1-2 minutes. You don't need to cook long as the greens will naturally wilt. 
  8. Turn off the heat and add pasta. Toss to combine. 
  9. Serve and enjoy!
