Yes, Tofu Bolognese is a thing. It’s a very delicious thing that you should make immediately.

I grew up in a household where whenever we didn’t know what else to make for dinner, or we were feeling lazy, or tired, or hungry, or it was Monday, or Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or even Friday, we would make pasta. Sure, we had other meals some nights, but who needs them when you could just have pasta? Probably the worlds most perfect food in my opinion. I’m pretty sure I could eat pasta every day and I would still love it.

Thinking back, I always loved pasta sauces with meat in them. My dad always preferred pastas without any meat in them… my how the times have changed… So whenever we went to restaurants, I would hunt the menu for something along the lines of a meaty, tomato-y, spicy pasta and order, then devour said pasta dish.

Just because I went vegan, doesn’t mean that I don’t love that satisfying hearty bowl of goodness. Except now it’s even better because no one had to die, it’s cholesterol free, lower in fat, higher in fiber, and the best part, it’s so freaking lick the bowl scrumptious. Ohmygoodness, I just had Tofu Bolognese for dinner last night and these pictures make me want it all over again. (Am I allowed to drool over my own pictures)?
