Meatless Spaghetti Instructions

via Dave Hood, Cook ‘n Share

Add the carrots, mushrooms, and celery to a food processor and pulse until chopped. You do not want them mushy, just-chopped.

Pour the oil into a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add in the onion and garlic and fry until the onions are translucent and the garlic is fragrant.

Put the veggies in. Stir and saute until they begin to sweat. This should take 4 minutes or so. Then add in the tomato paste and stir until it’s well incorporated.

Pour in the broth, tomatoes, and cream along with the bay leaves. Stir and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat and cover. Allow the sauce to simmer for 20 minutes or so.

While the sauce is simmering, cook the spaghetti by adding salted water to a pot.

Put the pasta in along with about a tablespoon of olive oil. Cook until al dente. This should take about 9 or 10 minutes.

Plate the spaghetti and ladle some sauce over the top. Grate the parmesan and add bay leaves.

Serve and enjoy your creamy meatless spaghetti bolognese.
