  • Add olive oil to skillet with Crumbles and heat over MED heat. Add garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add pureed tomatoes, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and cook over MED LOW heat for about 7-8 minutes. Stir occasionally so the sauce doesn't stick.
  • Toss some salt in the pot of boiling water and add pasta. Stir and boil about 3-4 minutes LESS than the package directions indicate.
  • Stir fresh herbs into the pasta sauce.
  • Drain pasta (reserving about 1/4 cup of the cooking water), and add pasta to the skillet with the sauce. Toss to coat the pasta in the sauce.

  • Stir until all ingredients are well combined and cheeses are melted.
