3.5 oz Violife Just Like Parmesan Wedge, grated

17.5 oz mushrooms of your choice, roughly sliced

10.5 oz fresh spinach

17.5 oz whole-wheat spaghetti

1 tsp red pepper flakes


2 tbsp olive oil

3.5 oz hoisin sauce

2 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp garlic chili paste

2 tbsp black and white sesame seeds

1 tsp harissa paste


1 tbsp Flora plant butter

½ cup panko breadcrumbs

1 tbsp fresh rosemary

1 tsp dried garlic

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4


For the marinade combine all ingredients and whisk together. Set aside.

For the crispy breadcrumbs, heat the Flora plant butter in a frying pan, add the breadcrumbs, rosemary and garlic and sauté for 3-5 mins until golden. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the pasta sauté the mushrooms in 2 tbsp olive oil for 5-7 mins until golden. Add the spinach for a further 2-3 mins and pour over the chili marinade. Add the Violife Just Like Cream Cheese Original and whisk until creamy.

Meanwhile, boil pasta according to instructions. Sieve and keep ½ cup of water, adding it to the pasta sauce. Whisk constantly until combined.

Use tongs to make small nests with the pasta, place on a plate, and pour the creamy mushroom sauce on top. Alternatively, you can add the pasta straight to the creamy sauce and then serve.

Sprinkle with breadcrumbs, red pepper flakes, and grated Violife Just Like Parmesan.
