I’ve always loved pasta. Although I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon my affair with pasta cooking started early. I feel like I have been cooking pasta for a long time even without holding a ladle–I had recipe books instead of children’s literature.

When I started earning for myself I have always wanted to get a taste of those food I used to just read about as a kid. Eating pasta is like reliving my memories of my childhood–like my childhood imaginations coming to life.

You see, cooking pasta is very personal for me. In this post I created my own pasta sauce. It is vegetarian–a celebration of my transition into vegetarian lifestyle. I have already started with baby steps, but I have committed to start eating strictly vegetarian by the turn of the new year.

This pasta recipe does not have dairy products like butter, cheese, and all-purpose cream. Instead, I used olive oil and Jolly coconut and Jolly shiitake mushroom.
