I replace meat with Beans(high in protein, fiber and Iron), some veggies such as Mushroom & Spinach to get meat kind flavor and there you have no Meat Meat Sauce in no time. Now, you can pack your lunch box with more confidence. This meatless meat sauce is perfect for pasta, pizza, spaghetti, meatless meat balls, Gnocchi and much more.
