Pasta e Fagioli

I know today was supposed to be another International recipe, but I’ve left on a trip to Rome and then Paris to bring my cat back to London (long story) and haven’t had… Continue reading

Aubergine and Pine Nut Pasta

This is an extremely tasty pasta, which also happens to be quite nutritious. I came up with this pretty much by just picking random ingredients that I felt like eating and combining it… Continue reading

Penne all’Arrabiata

Here’s what I ate more than anything else this past summer in Italy. Unless I was cooking at home, in which case I was most likely making some zucchini pasta, every time I… Continue reading

Pepper and Tomato Pasta

My mom had always told me that peppers and pasta don’t go well together, except for a few very specific mixes with blue cheese and cream. Since she was never wrong about anything… Continue reading

Wild Mushroom Pasta

I’ve been making a lot of stuff with mushrooms lately, but it’s only because I finally found a place to buy quality mushrooms for very decent prices and I might have gotten over… Continue reading

Sun-dried Tomato and Red Pepper Pesto

Okay so I really think this might be the best thing I’ve ever invented. Although obviously a quick google search proved to me (as usual) that I hadn’t really invented anything – plenty… Continue reading

Tofu and Olive Linguine

Ok so this one is quite interesting. I started off just making a puttanesca, but when I realized that I had no capers and that I had some leftover tofu I thought, whatever,… Continue reading

Tortiglioni al Ragú

Ragú is probably one of the most world-famous recipes for pasta, although you probably know it as Bolognese sauce. Although there are some technical differences between the two, they are minimal – and… Continue reading

Spicy Mushroom and Sausage Pasta

I know, I know, I make way too much stuff with mushroom and sausages. But since it’s so easy, cheap, and tasty, after I made this for myself I thought I might as… Continue reading

Spinach and Mushroom Pasta

This was a pasta I made on the first day I moved in, I didn’t have all that many ingredients as I had only just done a quick shopping and realized I’d bought… Continue reading

Pasta Alle Zucchine

Hey! I know it’s been a very long time since I last posted any new recipes but I was travelling all over the place during the summer and barely ever even had the… Continue reading

Mushroom and Sausage Pasta

Every time it’s either my birthday or one of my siblings’, my mom lets the person whose birthday it is decide what to have for lunch. For some reason, we always choose this… Continue reading

Conchiglie al Pesto ‘al Forno’

I was intending to make pesto lasagne this time, except unfortunately when I went out to buy lasagna sheets I couldn’t find any Italian ones. I went to the biggest supermarket and town,… Continue reading

Pesto alla Mamma

As far as I know, my mom came up with this, which she called ‘pesto sugoso’. We all loved it, and it’s an excellent pasta to make pretty much always. It’s also not… Continue reading

Linguine ai Funghi Porcini

I know, I haven’t been adding very many recipes lately, and I apologize. I’ve been traveling for the past week or so, and have been experimenting with some other cool vegan stuff (like… Continue reading

Pasta alla Primavera

Spaghetti Aglio Olio e Peperoncino

Ever get home at 4 in the morning, really, really hungry, but way too lazy to make a proper meal – and so resorted to eating all the junk food you could get… Continue reading

Rigatoni alla Puttanesca

Here’s a classic Italian sauce, the puttanesca. It’s supposed to have anchovies, but to be honest I think it tastes better without them anyway, with a little extra olives and capers instead. It’s… Continue reading

Caribbean Sugo

An old trick I always used back when I wasn’t vegan and I had to feed a lot of my hungry friends was to make a regular sugo and then make it twice… Continue reading

Pesto di Olive

This pasta is pretty simple to make, doesn’t take too long, and tastes absolutely insane. The color might look a bit weird, but don’t worry, I assure you that the taste more than… Continue reading
