    Amazing !! I’m newly vegan and this was a super fun and easy recipe. I added onions and grape tomatoes to the sautéed spinach. Add a lot ! That’s your color in the food. Top it with basil. I also used dried basil instead of fresh. Idk if that made a difference.

    Didn’t turn out good at all. Had to add tomato sauce to make it edible. Will not make again.

    It turned out well. I just had to add a little more salt for taste. The toddler ate it so that’s a win.

    Came out delicious, however I would add more sauce because it became dry after sitting on the stove. Would definitely make again though.

    Amazing recipe but instead of the roasted red tomatoes I used canned Chipotle Peppers and it really gave it a kick. My entire family loved this recipe!!!

    This was good. I used a homemade cashew based cream cheese that wasn’t that great.

    Made this for my girlfriend and I we loved it. Very simple and easy to make. Paired well with a Caesar. I think next time I’ll try more tomatoes and more basil. Thinking of adding beyond sausages.

    Not super special, but a solid, very easy recipe. I don’t have a blender, so I just mixed the sauce as much as I could by hand and it turned out fine. I also used regular rather than vegan cream cheese.

    I’m not vegan and I didn’t found vegan cream cheese, so I just replace it with Philadelphia AND IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD !!!! Planning to do it the vegan way as soon as I find the vegan cream cheese 😉.
