Get the pasta on to cook according to manufacturers instructions. When fully cooked, drain fully.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the meat/meat alternative, and pour in your jar of Mesa de Vida Smoky Latin Inspired Recipe Starter and Seasoning Sauce. Add about 1 Tb of water to the empty jar and shake to get all of the thick, rich concentrated flavors out! Add salt to taste.
Cook, stirring often and breaking up the meat/meat alternative, until the meat is fully cooked, and the sauce is thick and rich, about 10 minutes. *Optional: Stir in a couple of handfuls of baby spinach after the meat is cooked and wilt into the sauce, which takes about 1 minute.
Toss the hot cooked pasta with the "meaty" sauce, add toppings of your choice, and enjoy!
