The reason for this vegan recipe: my sister’s dietary restrictions. My sister who is four years younger than me has chosen to become a vegan. Since she is a busy designer with a very busy schedule, I thought I’d post every now and then a recipe that she could easily prepare.
Beware, this pasta is much much more delicious than it might sound to some, so eat it secretly. Believe me, you will not want to share!
Penne al Pomodoro
Ingredients (for 2)
– 2 cups penne
– 1 can of peeled and chopped tomatoes
– 1 tsp butter
– 1 cup of white mushrooms
– Black pepper
1. Cook the penne according to packet instructions, make sure that the water is as salty as the Mediterranean!
2. Cut the mushrooms in four then fry them in the butter for a few minutes. They should start oozing their aromatic juices and will darken in color. Add the tomatoes and bring the sauce to boil, then cover and simmer until the sauce thickens but doesn’t dry up.
3. When the sauce is ready, drop the cooked penne and on low heat, mix and stir the pasta with the sauce. Sprinkle freshly cracked black pepper, and if you’re not a vegan, grate Parmesan cheese on top :)
