Guess what we ate for dinner a lot before going vegan?
Hamburger Helper and those Birds Eye Voila Skillet Meals.
Don't judge me.
I liked the convenience of those meals and really thought cooking a homemade meal would take too long.
I was wrong.
As you can see in the dinner recipe video below, this meal will only take about 30 minutes and its filling, simple and delicious.
I usually double the ingredients to serve my family of 5.
The ingredients listed below are for 4 people.
This meal should take you about 35 minutes and you can serve it with vegan garlic bread and a salad.
Don't like mushrooms? I think more vegetables, black beans or vegan sausage (from a brand like Field Roast) will work as a good replacement.

Shake the cans of coconut milk, open and pour into the skillet along with the bow-tie pasta.
