Recipe by smellyvegetarian
This recipe makes me very nostalgic, as it is the one that made me fall in love with cooking when I was in college. All it took was the smell of the mushrooms and garlic sauteeing and I was hooked! This is a wonderful dish that is easily made vegan by choosing vegan veggie burgers and using a different sweetener for the honey. From The New World of Eating by Paula Duvall.

Made for 123 Tag. I was confused by the direction to stir the cornstarch directly into the veggie mixture so I mixed it into the sauce ingredients and then added it all to the veggies.It turned out beautifully...I would easily double the sauce portion next time.I made it strictly veggies with no veggie burger...we're just not a veggie burger family...LOL. I think it would be lovely with shrimp pork or chickn added as well. I used cappelini pasta and also added some zucchini. Very tasty.
