I threw together this pasta for the Plant Based on a Budget Challenge meal plan for one, week one and it seemed to be well-received, so I thought I’d create a recipe page for it. If you buy the pasta in bulk, this meal is incredibly inexpensive and super quick to make. You can throw whatever veggies you have, I just happened to have broccoli on the meal plan grocery shopping list.
