Not a Kitchen Nightmare

The last time my neighbor and I did a Costco run, one of the samples tables was touting this fake ground beef:

It tasted good, and I wanted to reduce my red meat consumption as painlessly as possible, so I bought some.  Then I cooked an eggplant, put it in a pan with some of the fake beef and a jar of store-bought basil pasta sauce and simmered the whole mess for a spell.  Then I poured it over penne.  It was quite tasty.

This is significant because most of my spontaneous cooking experiments turn out OK at best and sometimes just plain bad.

Costco here had that big bag-o-beefless-bits just once. Now we have to get it in smaller quantities at Trader Joe's. I don't know if it tastes like beef (I hope not!) but it adds a welcome bit of texture to food in addition to the nutrition. Keep eating less red meat!
