    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Wash and dry the peppers; cut off and discard the stems, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling.

    Cook the pasta
    2 Cook the pasta

    Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Turn off the heat. Reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and pepper pieces in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned.

    Make the sauce
    4 Make the sauce

    Add the chopped garlic, capers, and quatre épices to the pan; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the tomato paste and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add 1/2 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and the currants; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sauce is slightly thickened and the Beyond Burger™️ is cooked through. Turn off the heat.

    To the pot of cooked pasta, add the cooked Beyond Burger™️ and sauce and half the reserved pasta cooking water. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and the pasta is coated (if necessary, gradually add the remaining cooking water to ensure the pasta is thoroughly coated). Turn off the heat. Stir in the mascarpone until combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished pasta garnished with the parmesan. Enjoy!
