Cook the tomato pulp on a low flame for 15/20 minutes, adding the spices of your choice.

Now shape some meatballs using the mixed seitan, adding some breadcrumbs of flour if it’s too wet. Put seitan meatballs into the tomato sauce and cook for 5 minutes. Cook spaghetti in abundant, salted water; when ready, drain the pasta and put in the pan with sauce and meatballs.
