This Vegan Single Serve Chilli Cheese Pasta is loaded with my wife Liv’s famous bean-free fall chilli, vegan cheese and penne pasta for the perfect fall meal!


The Chili

  • 1 vegan sausage (I use Beyond Meat)
  • 2 vegan burger patties (I use Beyond Meat)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 28 oz (796 mL) no salt added diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup dry red lentils
  • 4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp chipotle chilli powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt

Single Serve Pasta

  • 1/2 cup Vegan Chilli (alternatively you can use marinara sauce)
  • 1 tbsp minced onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk, vegan cream OR just more water
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • sprinkle of salt and pepper
  • 2/3 cup short pasta like penne, rotini, fusilli, macaroni etc
  • 1/2 cup vegan cheese shreds


For the Chili

  1. In a large pot on low-medium heat, add the vegan sausage and beef and cook about 5 minutes, crumbling it as it browns. If you is pre-cooked, simply add to the pot and proceed to step 2.
  2. Add oil, onion, garlic, and carrot and cook a few minutes until onion becomes translucent and carrots soften slightly.
  3. Add the tomatoes, lentils, broth, chilli powder, chipotle, cumin, smoked paprika and salt and stir to combine.
  4. Bring to a low simmer and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes until lentils are tender. Uncover and simmer a few more minutes until thickened.
  5. Serve immediately, or allow to cool completely and store in airtight containers up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months.

For the Pasta Bake

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. To your ramekin or single-serve dish, add the marinara OR Chili, onion, garlic, water, coconut milk, nutritional yeast and salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the pasta and stir gently to combine. Sprinkle the cheese overtop. Cover with foil, then bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, remove foil, then return to oven and bake 10 more minutes, uncovered.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool before eating- it stays hot for a while! Be careful!
