Meatless Pasta



A meatless concoction at Cafe Georg---Mushroom Asparagus Pasta.  No, I'm not  going vegetarian, but with  only a few kinds of greens that I like, I always try to find ways to eat vegetables.   Fresh straw mushrooms, green asparagus and garlic olive oil with a hint of chili made this pasta hearty and healthy.  The pasta and vegetables were all cooked al dente---I loved the tender crispiness of asparagus and the mushrooms added a whole new dimension of flavor.  The dish was sprinkled with parmesan.

How'd the asparagus go with the pasta? I've never tried asparagus with pasta, but I like it with my crepe. Hahaa. But that one looks like something good. Bloghopping from Clarissa's.Ü

Meatless pasta! Now that's something I really like. :) I haven't tried this mushroom asparagus combination though. Hmm, I love both, so it should be yum! =P~

I don't need a meat in my pasta as long as there's plenty of veggies and of course, the cheese!

Ah Miranda, I can live with that. I'll try that at the Feast when we will be in New Zealand. I love pasta with generous spread of Parmesan cheese and my girls are pasta lovers, any pasta. Especially with asparagus and mushrooms, what a perfect combo and garlic olive oil? Wow!

Sarap, Luna! My sis is also going to cook meatless bihon tomorrow. I mean not really meatless coz we are going to use meat substitute instead of chicken meat.

Happyweekend, LUna!

Looks so good! I would add a little bit of peas to the mix to really make it green. It is good to have a few vegetarian meals, I would think that it gives your stomach a break from all the heavy protein that it would otherwise have to break down.
