Spaghetti night just got a whole lot better! Sauce brand Prego just launched its first vegan meat sauce: Prego+ Plant Protein Meatless Meat. Currently being shipped to retailers nationwide, the product mixes classic Prego tomato sauce with soy-based vegan meat crumbles. Steve Siegal, vice president of marketing, meals and sauces, said:

We were inspired to create Prego+ Plant Protein for consumers who are increasingly integrating plant-based foods into their diets to get additional protein.

The plant-based meat sauce, which boasts an impressive four grams of protein per serving and has a suggested retail price of $2.99 per 24-ounce jar, is just another sign that vegan options are taking over!  

Can’t wait to try the new sauce? Here are five tasty plant-based recipes that will tide you over until you get your hands on Prego’s Meatless Meat sauce:
