  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, slice mushrooms and mince garlic. Make zucchini noodles using a spiralizer or vegetable peeler. Set aside.
  3. Using your hands, crumble tempeh into a large bowl.
  4. Heat 2 large pans over medium heat. Add olive oil and minced garlic to both pans, cooking for 1-2 minutes until slightly browned. In one pan, add crumbled tempeh and cook for 3 minutes. In the other pan, add mushrooms and cook until browned and tender, about 10 minutes.
  5. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, thyme, and salt to pan with tempeh. Cook until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
  6. When mushrooms are cooked, drain and add to tomato mixture. Continue cooking for a few minutes, adding fresh chopped basil at the end. Adjust seasonings as needed.
  7. In the used mushroom pan, lightly saute the zucchini noodles for 1-2 minutes. Add zucchini noodles to drained pasta. Pour sauce over top and stir to combine.
