Spinach Linguine with Pesto, Onions, and Artichoke Hearts

Posted in dinner, pasta, the Challenge, Veganomicon at 7:58 pm by veganalects

Yet another Veganomicon hit. If you don’t have this cookbook, go buy it! Last night I made this pasta with the yummy basil-cilantro pesto they recommend. The only change I made to the recipe was to double the amount of pasta to a pound—half a pound isn’t quite enough for the three of us. I would have made more pesto but I didn’t have enough basil. It was fine the way it was, though.

After we finished our meal, my parents confessed that they’d been pleasantly surprised by the food so far. (Clearly they had expected me to serve them boiled sawdust.) I hope to change more minds tomorrow—we’re celebrating my dad’s birthday, and I’m planning to make the Tea-Poached Pears with Chocolate Sauce from you-know-what-cookbook.

    Hey, I just randomly found your blog and I’m impressed! You’re dishes look so tasty! Especially this one ❤
    I just went vegan about 3 weeks ago and I’ve ordered Vegan with a vengeance and How it all Vegan, sadly they haven’t arrived yet. I wanted to buy Veganomic too and now that I see how you gush over it I definitely will when I get my next paycheck =)

    Greets, Lizzy
