I was hungry after work. In keeping with my ten minute challenge I boiled water, rolled a sheet of pasta, cut it into three, cooked them and assembled everything in a small skillet atop a drizzle of basil infused olive oil. I’m out of béchamel, so I layered with mascarpone and vegetarian Bolognese. It took four minutes on the stove to make it hot — onto the plate with a little Marinara.
I could have used a vegan cheese sauce to make dinner completely animal free.
Or I could have added slices of cooked sausage or melting cheeses.
I wanted something light and quick for dinner, high protein, balanced carbohydrate. I wanted chew, so I put in soy “meat” balls. Since it was vegetarian I wanted to maximise flavour and coated the pan with a drizzle of basil infused olive oil. (link to tutorial for the sauce)
