A Vegitarian Penne Pasta Recipe ... ?Page 1 of 1    
Please remember anchovies are fish therefore not veggo!!! As other posters have suggested- onions, garlic, good roma toms, tomato paste, capsicums, celery, mushies, olives... almost anything will work! You could even add some cannelini beans for a protein boost? Basically a tomato/onion sauce base with any tizzy bits you fancy will do. If she is veg not vegan- do some decadent garlic bread too

A Vegitarian Penne Pasta Recipe ... ?
Posted: 8/13/2009 7:57:18 PM
It's "vegetarian."

I make really simple pasta. I just boil it and drizzle it with some good olive oil and some good parmesan cheese. (Get *good* cheese.) Might add some slivered fresh basil. Add a nice salad with some fresh mozzarella on the side and you've got a complete meal.

If I want to dress up the penne, I'll put a generous amount of olive oil in a frying pan and add some chopped garlic & sliced mushrooms. When the mushrooms are just about done I add some cherry tomatoes sliced in half and some slivered fresh basil and give it just a few minutes to soften the tomatoes. Serve over the pasta with freshly grated parmesan.

Good luck. Let us know how it goes!
