How to become vegetarian if you love Pasta:
Pasta Con Broccoli with cheese topping
Pasta of your choice (half a box)
Crushed Garlic (I used a bulb for 1/2 a box of pasta)
Broccoli spears or 1 bunch of broccoli (you can also use boccolini)
Cheese or Cashew nuts for topping (you can also use vegan cheese or regular cheese if you are a lacto veggie)
Olive oil or coconut oil for frying the garlic
Salt & Pepper to taste
Wash and boil the broccoli in water. We like a lot of them. When they're crisp tender, get them out of the water using tongs.
Boil the pasta right into the hot water where the broccoli was boiled in. The water should have the slat and bits of broccoli pieces in it. Cook the pasta there until crisp tender.
When the pasta is done, put the broccoli back into the pot with the pasta and stir.
Then you take a whole bulb of crushed garlic and fry in olive oil until soft. Pour the garlic and oil into the pasta broccoli mixture.
Stir well. Transfer into a deep bowl or plate and sprinkle some grated parmesan cheese if you are an ovo-lacto vegetarian.
If you are a vegan, then get some nuts, whirl them in a food processor or a high speed blender to make some cheese like cosistency. Sprinkle some of it on top of your plate.
It was very tasty!
If you are a pasta lover, you can your pasta and never miss the animal flesh in it. This dish is garlicky and very vegan friendly. You can use vegan cheese on top if you are vegan. Ground raw cashew is also a good option!
