Tips for Success:
- Maple Syrup: Sweetness level is a personal preference. Start at a lower amount and increase to your desired sweetness. We preferred the 1/3 cup amount.
- Rinsing the Pasta: Rinse the pasta in cold water to remove any excess starches. Most Italians would cringe with rinsing pasta with cold water, but for this recipe it works perfectly.
- Pasta of choice: We used a GF spaghetti, please feel free to use your favorite spaghetti or noodle for this dish.
- Cooking the Pasta: Do not overcook the pasta, cook it right up to al dente, then drain and rinse with cold water.
- Resting the Dish: It is very important to allow this dish to rest. This allows the spaghetti and opportunity to fully soak up the sauce flavors. Rest the dish for at least 5 minutes before serving.
Leftovers and Freezing:
Leftovers will generally keep for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. Store in a covered container. Reheating can be done on the stovetop, or in the microwave.
This noodle dish can be frozen. For best results place in the refrigerator overnight to thaw.
Pantry Products Used:
- Vegetable Stock: We use Pacific Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Stock. We love this brand because it is Whole Food Plant Based compliant, as it does not contain MSG, has no oil, and does not contain any highly-processed ingredients.
- Tamari: We used San J Tamari Soy Sauce, Gluten Free, Reduced Sodium. You can substitute the tamari with reduced sodium soy sauce, Braggs Liquid Aminos, or Braggs Coconut Liquid Aminos.
- Chili Garlic Sauce: We used Huy Fong Foods Chili Garlic Sauce. This brand does have a small amount of sugar. However, this brand is generally accepted by the WFPB community.
Kitchen Products Used:
- Stock pot to cook the pasta
We certainly hope you give this deliciousness a try.
