Meatball Pasta Bake

  • Author: Liv B

  • Yield: 4-6 servings


A super delicious vegan pasta bake with homemade Beyond Meat meatballs!



  • 2 Beyond Meat burger patties
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp Italian herbs
  • 2 tbsp oil

Pasta Bake:

  • 4 cups dry pasta
  • 2 cups chopped mixed veggies (mushroom, onion, bell pepper)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 jar marinara sauce (approx 650 mL)
  • splash of oat milk or nondairy milk
  • 1 cup vegan cheese (for topping)
  • 1 batch meatballs (see above) or 14 store bought veggie meatballs


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all meatball ingredients except oil and mix to combine. Form 1-1.5 tbsp size balls of mixture and roll into meatballs. You should have about 14.
  2. Add oil to a pan on medium heat and cook 15 minutes, flipping and turning regularly to brown all sides.
  3. Meanwhile, cook your pasta until cooked but slightly firm. Drain and set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  5. Remove the meatballs from the pan. Add the veggies and oil and cook 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until veggies soften. Add marinara, oat milk, cooked pasta and meatballs and stir to combine.
  6. Add to a casserole dish, top with vegan cheese and bake 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  7. Let stand a few minutes before serving.

  1. One of my favourite recipes of Liv’s so far. This is such a great, balanced meal; grain from the pasta (I used whole wheat to make it a bit healthier), lots of veggies, and protein from the beyond meat patties (which made amazing meatballs in a short amount of time). You could probably make your own tomato sauce to cut down on salt, but it was super delicious and makes great leftovers (or meal prep).
