  • 1/4 tsp paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke Wrights Brand
  • 1 tsp soy sauce low sodium, NO SODIUM BENZOATE

  • Remove 1 cup of pasta water and set to side, then drain the spaghetti. Place the drained spaghetti back into the cooking pot and add in carbonara sauce. Heat until warm using any remaining pasta water to thin out the sauce if necessary.
  • Plate the spaghetti carbonara, add the tofu bits on top, and sprinkle with cracked black pepper and parsley. Enjoy!
