This week I’m sharing one of my tried and true favorite meals: Oh She Glows’ Creamy Tomato Mushroom Pasta. It’s comforting, filling, vegan (but in a tastes-too-good-to-notice-a-difference kind of way), and it’s just as delicious the next day for lunch, which is very important for my work-day, leftover lunches. It’s actually one of the recipes that convinced me to buy the The Oh She Glows Cookbook (affiliate link), and for the record, it’s the only cookbook I own. I trusted the Amazon reviews I read, and I haven’t made anything I haven’t loved..and it’s all vegan?!

Fresh basil smells so. good.

This was also the first recipe to convince me to buy nutritional yeast (affiliate link) for that parmesan-like creaminess in the sauce, and I’m so glad I did. While it doesn’t sound tasty, it’s very similar to the yeast found in bread — it just doesn’t have any leavening properties. Most importantly, it offers a cheesy flavor! I love it with pasta and in soups, but I have been meaning to experiment with mac ‘n cheese. I have substituted parmesan for the ingredient when I don’t have it on hand, especially in someone else’s kitchen, but it’s delicious with it, so I figure why change it?

Also guys…I promise I’m going to start taking better food pictures, but as was the case last night, I was just ready to clean up the dishes and eat it! Mmmm.

What did you make for dinner last night? What are your favorite dinner meals?
