Tagliatelle With Faux Turkey-Flavored Bean Croquettes

  • One package Tagliatelle pasta
  • One 16 oz can of vegetarian baked beans
  • One envelope of meatless gravy, (turkey flavored)
  • One and 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • One 8 oz can of tomato sauce (meatless)
  • Two cups of bread crumbs
  • One cup of flour
  • One teaspoon of garlic powder
  • One teaspoon of oregano
  • Two teaspoons of vegetable oil
  • Three tablespoons of grated cheese (Parmesan)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of taco seasoning

Open the can of baked beans, and crush them.  Add oil to the mixture, and stir. Add the bread crumbs, flour, shredded cheese, grated cheese together, blend well.  Add the tomato sauce, salt, taco seasoning, pepper, garlic powder, oregano.  Mix into a firm paste. Form them into croquettes. (If you want to call them meatless meat balls, you may.  Why not?) Chill the croquettes for half an hour.  Following this, marinate them in the turkey-flavored gravy for half an hour.  While you are doing this, boil the Tagliatelle to al dente consistency. Serve the croquettes and gravy on a bed of Tagliatelle.
