A Little Effort
- 2 packs Quorn Spicy Vegan Buffalo Fillets
- 330g spaghetti
- 1 jar of roasted red peppers (or 3 fresh red peppers roasted for 40 minutes, skins and seeds removed)
- 2 shallots, finely diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp vegan butter
- 3 tbsp vegan cream cheese or creme fraiche
- 60ml plant-based milk
- 0.5 tbsp cornflour
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 handful basil, chopped
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
- Salt & pepper
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C, then place your Quorn Buffalo Fillets on a baking tray and cook for 22 minutes.
- Cook your pasta according to the pack instructions and drain, reserving about 60ml of the starchy pasta water. Coat the spaghetti in a little olive oil to avoid it sticking.
- Add your butter to a saucepan and sauté your diced shallots and minced garlic until soft and fragrant.
- Add the cooked shallots and garlic to your blender along with the jarred roasted red peppers, cream cheese, milk, seasonings, corn flour, and nutritional yeast. Blend until smooth.
- Transfer the pasta sauce back to the saucepan and heat over a low heat, adding the reserved pasta water and stir to combine - the sauce should be thick and glossy. Stir in your cooked spaghetti, ensuring it’s fully coated in the sauce.
- Remove your Buffalo Fillets from the oven and slice thinly. Place the sliced fillets on top of your cooked pasta, and scatter over the chopped basil, some freshly ground black pepper, and red pepper flakes if using.
- Serve up and enjoy!

If you like spice you can also add in extra chilli flakes for a kick.
