Hurray for this quick and delicious spaghetti sauce! To make it vegan, I sauteed the onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil, and then added some TVP with the rest of the ingredients. I also used 1 T Italian Season rather than the individual herbs listed. Turned out tasty, and cooked as quickly as the noodles. Thanks for posting this! It was exactly what I needed.
