Italian Pasta With Mushroom Sauce
 on 05 Nov 11 01:29 AM

Very tasty; good change from useful tomato-based pastas. I made some changes because I am vegan (don't eat dairy). As substitute for butter I used olive oil and a little coconut oil for richness. Instead of dairy cheese I used a homemade 'cheese' made from cashews. I didn't have time to make white sauce (I would have used non-dairy milk if I had made it) but I had some leftover celery soup I had made earlier so I used this instead and it worked well. (Similar to this soup Also I included some garlic, cooked some fresh green peas with the mushrooms for a bright colour and added a splash of non-alcoholic white wine while cooking the vegetables.
