Frozen meatless crumbles are convenient and quick-cooking, helping this pasta dinner come together with ease. The sauce’s flavor foundation comes from a trio of aromatics—onion, carrot, and celery—that sauté until they start to brown, which develops rich savory notes. We call for traditional spaghetti, but you can use any pasta shape or type you love (such as whole-wheat, chickpea-based, or gluten-free). For a vegan dish, sprinkle with vegan Parmesan or nutritional yeast.
