I just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Italy. It is an absolutely beautiful country and the people are amazingly kind. My only complaint is there is not a lot of vegan food.

I have always loved Pasta Fagioli but the restaurants there used chicken broth for a base and usually included some type of meat.

After I returned home and stocked up the refrigerator I created the following recipe. You can eliminate the Tofurky Spinach Pesto Sausage but it does add a lot of flavor to the dish.

ENJOY!

My husband loves artichokes but when I told him my idea for this recipe he seemed less-than-excited. That is, however, until he tasted it.

I served the pasta on top of pan-grilled romaine leaves but any green would work. It is also good hot or cold and makes a great main or side dish.

Make sure that you use artichoke hearts in water, not oil.

ENJOY!

Not everyone loves eggplant, also known as aubergine, but this version is a crowd favorite.

The smoky taste of the grilled eggplant along with the lemony pasta makes this dish deliciously light and satisfying.

The skin on the grilled eggplant should start to shrivel and the shape soften. Be sure to test for doneness by poking with a fork or knife.

When sauteing mushrooms, remember to cook over a medium-high heat, turning often, and do not salt! if you don’t like mushrooms…this dish works great without them.

NOTE: If you don’t like mushrooms…this dish works great without them.
