Pasta or Spaghetti are some of my absolute favorites when I need something quick, warm and comforting. It’s the dream 15 minute meal so because of that I think I make Pasta or Spaghetti at least once a week, haha. I use to make my simple pesto recipe, which I always have a big batch of and then stir it through a hot bowl of penne and some veggies.
Today I went for a classic favorite recipe – Vegan Spaghetti Carbonara. Perfect on busy days and taste absolutely delicious.
If you want the carbonara meat free like me, you can always add mushrooms, courgettes, egg-plants or other of you own favorite vegetables in this dish. Today I used a leftover of these Vegan Bean Sausages, chopped in small pieces and roasted on the pan. A perfect combination to the creamy Spaghetti result. But as this recipe says underneath – mushrooms or other vegetables also does the job perfectly!
