1. Bring saucepan of water to boil. Add pasta to cook for 10-13 minutes until al dente. Drain, rinse and set aside.

3. Reduce heat to medium. Add soy protein, tomato sugo and 1 jar (2 cups) water. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes until protein is tender.

4. Slice pear and toss with rocket leaves. Whisk 1 tbsp vinegar with 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss through salad and set aside.

5. Toss cooked pasta into bolognese sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Slice basil leaves and scatter over to garnish.
