Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the bread cubes onto a baking tray. Drizzle with the olive oil evenly, toss, and sprinkle with the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast, toss. Bake for 10 minutes, flip, and bake further until the bread is lightly browned. Set aside.
In a large pot, add onion, celery, carrots, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring often. Add 1/4 cup water and cover, cooking another 5 minutes.
Add dried tarragon, dried oregano, tomato paste, garlic powder, marinara sauce, and vegetable broth. Cook for 5 minutes then add the mushrooms and pasta.
When the pasta is nearly al dente, add the TVP and great northern beans. When the pasta is cooked through, add the lemon juice, stir, and serve topped with fresh parsley and croutons.
