Orecchiette with Vegan Sausage and Broccolini

This recipe for pasta with broccolini and crumbled vegan sausage is a spin-off of an Italian classic. Broccolini has a pleasant earthy flavor that is the perfect contrast to the smoky and sweet vegan sausage crumbles. Paired with orecchiette, a pasta that will catch the crumbles and light olive oil sauce in its ear-shaped cups, this pasta is delicious and satisfying in every bite.

It’s fall! Officially. The leaves on the trees outside have turned yellow and it snowed last week. Snow. Yeah. Colorado. Why?! Warm meals are needed in times like these. So we made this easy, comforting, flavorful Pumpkin Curry Pasta – basic, sure, but goes one step further with a kick of curry powder AND it’s deliciously vegan.


Vegan Jalapeño Poppers

Vegan Jalapeño Poppers by Pasta-based. Beautiful, bursting, crispy, jalapeño poppers stuffed with vegan ricotta and sausage crumbles sprawled out on a dark grey baking sheet and laying on top of a bright orange and yellow dish towel. Small bowl of vegan ranch with fresh dill nestled between the poppers and some more sausage crumbles scattered on the table pleasing the eyeballs.

We recently went to a vegan restaurant that has MANY mouth watering options but, as much as we wanted to, we couldn’t order everything on the menu (or could we… ?). So, one of the many things we ordered was the vegan jalapeño poppers. Neither of us really had jalapeño poppers many times before, but it sounded damn delicious at first glance that day.

No surprise, we freakin’ loved them! They were stuffed with vegan mozzarella, vegan sausage and fire roasted in a brick oven. They were to DIE for, so we naturally wanted to make our own version of these.
