Ingredients:

1 package of Prot's gill-t free mince
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional, for added flavor)

Olive oil for cooking

Instructions:

Step 2 - Shape the mixture into small meatballs, about 1 inch in diameter.
Step 3 - Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the meatballs to the pan and cook for about 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown and cooked through.
Step 4 - Once cooked, remove the meatballs from the pan and set aside. They are now ready to be added to the Aglio Olio.

Part 2: Making Aglio Olio

Ingredients:

8 ounces spaghetti or your preferred pasta
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust according to your spice preference)
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
Lemon wedges (optional, for serving)

Instructions:

Step 1 - Cook the spaghetti or pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the cooked pasta and set aside.
Step 2 - In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté for 1-2 minutes until the garlic becomes fragrant and lightly golden. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
Step 3 - Add the cooked spaghetti or pasta to the pan with the garlic and red pepper flakes. Toss well to coat the pasta with the infused oil. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is heated through.
Step 4 - Season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes if you prefer more or less spice.
Step 5 - Add the plant-based seafood mince meatballs to the pan and gently toss them with the pasta.
Step 6 - Remove from heat and garnish with fresh chopped parsley.
Step 7 - Serve the Aglio Olio with plant-based seafood mince meatballs immediately. Optionally, serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over the pasta for added freshness.

Note: Feel free to customize the recipe by adding additional vegetables like sautéed spinach or cherry tomatoes to the Aglio Olio, according to your taste preferences.
