I made this for dinner tonight and both my omnivorous roommate and I were VERY impressed! I rehydrated my TVP with a small amount of a vegetable bouillon cube in the boiling water, used an entire small red pepper and minced the garlic. I immediately added all of the ingredients for the first two steps, stirring and sauteeing everything in about a 1/2 tbsp olive oil for a minute or so before covering. I used whole wheat elbow macaroni and half a can of chopped tomatoes (leftovers from previous cooking), plus a tablespoon of sugar, and about 1/3 of a vegetable bouillon cube dissolved in boiling water for the broth (I always try to use more water and less bouillon to reduce the sodium a bit). Since I'm not vegan, I mixed in about 1 tablespoon of (packaged) parmesan cheese once it had finished cooking. With some salt, plenty of fresh ground black pepper and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes, it was just delicious!
