Pasta with Veggies Topped with Vegan Cheese




You will need-:

  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Vegetables of your choice- I used carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, and sun-dried tomatoes
  • Extra virgin olive oil - EVOO
  • Daiya cheese- I used mozzarella style shreds
  • Black pepper- freshly ground
  • Salt if needed- I don't usually need salt when there is cheese in any preparation. So check the taste  after you add the cheese and then decide.

Method-:

  • Prepare the pasta as per package instructions. Drain it and keep aside. 
  • Pour some EVOO in a pan, when it heats up, add veggies except sun- dried tomatoes and saute them until they get just cooked.
  • Then add cooked pasta  to it and mix everything. Keep everything folding in for a couple more minutes.
  • Time to add sun- dried tomatoes and then the delicious dairy free Daiya cheese. 
  • Turn off the stove and mix together.
  • Serve and savor every bite..:)
HAVE A FUN WEEKEND EVERYONE!

@Anonymous-
Daiya is an alternative dairy alternative food company- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daiya

They have a wide range of products, one of my fav is their cheeses- cheddar style and mozzarella style shreds. here is the pic I found on the web. If you live in US, you can find them in any health food store.
HOpe it helps.
