150 g farfalle (bow-tie), or other short pasta 2 1/4 cups
2 smoked vegetarian sausages 100 g
6 cups baby spinach 100 g
1/2 onions, coarsely chopped 100 g
3/4 cup vegetable broth 190 mL
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
2 tsp nutritional yeast 6 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.


  1. Coarsely chop the onion. Clean the baby spinach.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté 2-3 min with stirring.
  3. Cut the sausage in pieces, then add to the pan. Break up the pieces using a wooden spoon and cook 4-5 min.
  4. To save time, the rest of the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Cook the pasta.
  5. Pour the warm broth into the frying pan. Reduce 5 min until the broth is almost completely absorbed but the sauce is still moist.
  6. Pour the drained farfalle into the frying pan, then add the baby spinach. Add salt and pepper to taste, then sprinkle with nutritional yeast. Toss well and serve in the warmed dishes.
