Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsps Primal Kitchen Extra Virgin Olive Oil (See Notes!)
  • 1 (24 oz.) bottle Primal Kitchen No Dairy Vodka Sauce (See Notes!)
  • 1 (12 oz.) pack spaghetti, use GF if desired!
  • 1 bag Vegan Meatless Meatballs (For Homemade, See Notes!)
  • 2-3 Tbsps vegan butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • sea salt + black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

Instructions

  • To begin, cook spaghetti according to packaging, drain, and set aside. **TIP: after draining my pasta, I often rinse with cold water to prevent pasta from sticking.**
  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter until melted. Now, add the vegan meatballs and sear on the sides, turning them every 2 minutes or so. Continue to cook them until fully browned and cooked through.
  • Once done, remove meatballs from the skillet onto a plate and using the same skillet, add another Tbsp of butter and let it melt. Add garlic, red pepper flakes, parsley, oregano, smoked paprika, and salt + pepper, stirring until combined.
  • Next, add in vodka sauce and let sauce boil slightly, about 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add the meatballs and cooked spaghetti and toss until fully coated, cooking it for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Bon Appetit!
