Pizza Pasta

Pizza Pasta

Pasta that tastes like pizza – say what?  It’s pretty much the best of both worlds.  And it’s vegan…even better!!

Serves 4:
2 cups brown rice pasta
4 cups vegetable stock
2 cups spinach
1 zucchini
1 cup diced mushrooms (baby bella or oyster work well)
2 garlic cloves
1 shallot
1 small jar sun dried tomatoes
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. crushed red pepper


  1. In a medium size pot bring noodles and vegetable broth to a boil.
  2. Chop up all vegetables and add to a medium size pan on low heat (excluding sundried tomatoes). The mushrooms will release enough water where you won’t need oil.
  3. Stir in spices and let cook until pasta is cooked. Pasta will absorb the vegetable broth and if there is still some liquid don’t strain pasta, just add it right into the pan with vegetables.
  4. Toss in the sundried tomatoes and give it one final stir before serving.

  1. Hey D!
    Really LOVED the Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps cooking class you did last month at Natural Grocers in Tucson! Looking forward to learning more from you – and getting healthier as a result!
    Have a question for you – while I’ve certainly go nothing against brown rice, I discovered quinoa pasta years ago, and really prefer it to any rice pasta I’ve tried. I LOVE Ancient Grains pasta products because to me they taste and feel the most like regular wheat pasta – however, I do realize they are “quinoa and corn” not just quinoa alone.
    Is the reason you use rice pasta because you want to avoid the added corn ingredient?

    1. Hi Lynn,

      That is so awesome! I apologize I did not see this note sooner…sometimes the site marks things as spam when clearly you are not 🙂 I also love quinoa pasta, it just so happens that I made this one at Natural Grocers and they had a brown rice pasta that I knew works really well. I don’t mind the quinoa/corn blend of pastas as long as the corn is organic. Thanks for your comment!! Hope to see you soon! Check out the Natural Grocers website for upcoming events as we will be doing a Super Food Series starting in July!!

  2. Oops – I think I said “Ancient Grains” brand of quinoa pasta products…it’s actually “Ancient Harvest” – as I’m sure you know! ;-P
