So very simple.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil penne, drain, set aside.
  2. On med-hi heat in a deep skillet, add the sesame oil and garlic and sauté for about a minute--just long enough for the garlic to infuse the oil.
  3. Add squash and mushrooms, sauté for about 5 minutes. Add a tablespoon of water if necessary for the veggies to cook properly.
  4. Besides the penne, add the rest of the ingredients and stir into a sauce. Let simmer for about a minute. Add penne and stir.
  5. Devour!

I love how simple and easy this recipe is. It's also tasty and so healthy feeling. I subbed plain yogurt as another reviewer suggested. No longer vegan, but still delicious!

This has so much room for modification, it is wonderful. I didn't have squash so I used red and orange bell peppers. I also subbed plain yogurt for the mayo. Thanks DiZzY
