Pasta, Four Ways

Isn't it pretty and bright? And it was delicious, too.

The top spaghetti was mixed with basil walnut pesto and peas. The next one was a nutritional yeast and nut based cheese sauce. The next one was just marinara with seitan, olives, and tomatoes. Finally, the last one just had olive oil and spices with broccoli. I added strips of stir-fried squash, bell peppers, and more broccoli to separate the different kinds.

Plus, Dash is much more willing to eat his veggies if they are "on the side."

This is one of my favorite places to look at beautiful dishes of food.
They're always so well presented and photographed. I wish I could LIVE in their house.


  1. Yum! Have you ever tried making pasta from different things other than dough? Maybe you can do a "pasta 4 ways" by having a different noodle in the dish! =]

  2. Arrangement and presentation can really "make" a dish!

  3. Some days I'm more willing to eat my veggies if they are on the side, too!

  4. I absolutely love adding nutritional yeast to my pasta dishes. I never thought I would find a worthy substitute for parmesan until I found it.
