Linguine Primavera

You know pasta is a staple of mine and this is definitely a new favourite for Izzie and I. We made it a week ago and then couldn’t stop thinking about it for the coming week. This pasta is loaded with fresh seasonal vegetables- honestly it’s like 80% greens! In a creamy sauce topped off…

Cheeseburger Pasta

After craving a burger most of the day I got a bit moody about what to have for dinner as it didn’t feel very exciting. I decided to take all the good bits of a burger and put it in pasta, as you do. It’s cheesy, savoury and thanks to a few strange additions tastes…

Smokey Mac ‘n’ Cheese with Mushroom Bacon

Macaroni and cheese was never something I liked before I became vegan.  I found the cheesy sauce to be cloying and the whole dish was just overly filling. In fact cheesy white pasta sauces actually led me to think that I didn’t like pasta at all. A ridiculous thing to say. However now that I…
