Pasta. Again!



It's just too easy. I made this last night after staring into the refrigerator for about 5 minutes, totally stumped as to what I felt like having. I saw broccoli. I saw grape tomatoes. I also saw olives and "Parmezano Sprinkles"*. I'll make pasta! Luckily I had a box of angel hair pasta in the cupboard. Not my favorite (I'm into spaghetti and linguine) but it would have to do. I sauteed the broccoli, tomatoes and some garlic in olive oil, cooked the pasta and tossed it all together, adding lots more olive oil, 4-5 more cloves of crushed garlic and the olives. I sprinkled some crushed red pepper flakes and the vegan parmesan (not pictured) over the top. It was delicious. It made a mountain of pasta so we'll be having it again tonight.

*"Parmezano Sprinkles" is a recipe from The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook. It's a vegan parmesan cheese substitute which uses almonds, miso paste, nutritional yeast and salt. Email me if you want the recipe! devilandmouse[at]yahoo.com
