Spaghetti With "meatless" Beef Mushroom Sauce

Total Time

I found this recipe in Real Simple magazine and then changed it a bit, mainly by using Morningstar mealstarters Veggie Crumbles instead of the ground beef, which I've been trying to avoid. I made a few other small changes to suit me and this turned out really good and made great leftovers too.
