Balsalmic Pasta and Beans

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
2 tabespoons all purpose flour
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon vegan chick’n bouillion powder (I use Bill’s Best Chick’Nish seasoning)
1/2 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup water
2 1/2 tablespoons balsalmic vinegar
2 teaspooons olive oil
1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes with onions, drained
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained

What you do: 

1. Cook pasta as directed on package. While the pasta is cooking, in a small sauce pan, stir together the flour, nutritional yeast, chick’n powder, salt and pepper.
2. Add the water, balsalmic vinegar, olive oil, and tomatoes. Stir until combined. Simmer that sauce combination over medium heat for 3 to 6 minutes, or until the sauce starts to thicken.
3. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and return it to the pot where it was boiled. Add the drained kidney beans to pasta, and pour the sauce over it; stir to combine, then serve!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

is the nutritional yeast really needed, or do you think the dish would taste pretty good without it. No one at my house likes nutritonal yeast.

Nah, I don't think it's totally necessary for the dish to still be good, I'm just a big nooch fan so I threw it in. So just leave it out. Though you might want to throw in a tiny bit more seasonings to make sure it isn't too bland.

This recipe reminds me of the goolash my mom made when I was a kid.  It's hearty, delicious and makes great leftovers.  Good in any season-I made in the summer.  I imagine it's good for you too!
