This vegan spaghetti recipe is hands down, our favorite vegan pasta recipe here at Vegan Test Kitchen. Why?
Because we can’t get enough of the plant-based “meatballs”!
The sauce is pretty delicious too 😉 We used Rao’s for this recipe to save on time! Feel free to use this vodka sauce or your favorite marinara. So many options!
This vegan spaghetti recipe tastes better than all the other plant-based meatball recipes we’ve tested.
It is simply the best! Just look at those “meatballs”!
Better yet? This recipe is so quick! Literally on the table in 30 minutes.
Pair with a Kale Salad with Caesar dressing and dinner is served!
If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers you can easily make a “meatball” sub for lunch the next day!
Sprinkle some homemade vegan parmesan cheese on top for added flavor and texture!

Stir the blanched spinach and cooked rice into the beefy crumble mixture.
Add the tomato sauce and tomato paste and stir until combined.
Add the beefy crumble mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix well.
Scoop portions of the batter into your hands and make 1" "meatballs" with the mixture. Place each one on a baking sheet 1" apart.
