I've been saving up a few Veganomicon recipes for one post. So here they are, starting with Penne Vodka:
I couldn't wait to try this recipe. I had my husband pick up some vodka from the liquor store, I almost bought an immersion blender just for the occasion. And while it was very good, I really had my hopes up too much. Maybe I used too many pasta noodles. . Whatever it was, I will likely not be repeating this recipe again... at least until I've tried more recipes from this cookbook. Please don't get me wrong, this wasn't awful, but just a little bit bland or something.
Next up, is the Pasta E Fagoli:
I used canned tomatoes, and probably too many noodles. But I think what it comes down to, is I don't really like beans and pasta together. I'll try it again, but like above, not for a while.
And last but not least, Leek & Bean Cassoulet.
This, my friends, is some perfect comfort food. I ate so much of this, because I didn't want to stop eating it, my belly was so full for hours. It reminded me a little of pot pie, but less labor intensive (though it really is labor intensive). The bisquits were even a little bit undercooked, but that didn't stop me from loving this recipe!
And, I secretly am trying to figure out who to invite over for dinner so I have an excuse to make it again!
