"Farinheira" soy sausage

Though it is said that tradition is no longer what it was, I think a nice vegetarian sausage based in the Portuguese tradition of smoked sausages is the healthiest way to continue to enjoy our traditional flavors.
My pleasure in enjoying sausage, goes back to my childhood. And recently, it was a pleasant surprise when the soy sausage "farinheira" appeared on the market.

I bought it, I tasted it and I liked it!

Now, imagine a dish made with "farinheira" soy sausage and garnished with vegan mozzarella. Divine!

This dish is very simple to cook and quick as well. It is so tasty that even the most skeptical about vegetarian food, would be surrendered  to its flavors and textures.

Do you want a bite?

        1 "farinheira" soy sausage
        spaghetti pasta
        3 or 4 tablespoons of olive oil
        2 large garlic gloves
        1 vegan mozzarella
        salt to taste

Use a big pot with 1 liter water per 100g dry pasta. Bring the water to boil and add the right amount of salt. Let it boil again and put the pasta.
Stir it well and let it cook uncover until it is al-dente.
Drain the pasta in a calender. 

Cut the garlic cloves into pieces put them in a frying pan and sauté in the olive oil for 1 minute (low flame).
Peel  the skin of the sausage, cut it into very small pieces and add it to the garlic mixture. Combine well for about 3 min (medium flame).
Add the pasta and mix it carefully for about 1 min.

Put it in a beautiful plate. Grate the mozzarella and garnish the plate.

Et voilá!
