Vegan vs. Vegetarian Eggplant Lasagna
Recently I prepared two eggplant lasagnas side by side.  A Vegan Eggplant Lasagna and a Vegetarian Eggplant Lasagna, as I wanted to compare their tastes.

In both eggplant lasagnas I used my Vegan Tomato Sauce for All Occasions as well as a single large eggplant sliced thinly.  You can of course use your own tomato sauce if you prefer.  The only difference between the two lasagnas was the type of cheese used.

In order to avoid duplication, I recommend your reading my post on Vegan Eggplant Lasagna.  You will learn there more about…

The Vegan Eggplant Lasagna Challenge
I have made vegetarian lasagne countless times.  Yet, I’ve always added cheese to each layer.  Sometimes I reduce the amount of cheese I use by mixing ricotta cheese with eggplant puree together.  I’ll have to share my vegetarian lasagna some time, as it’s my son’s favorite.

 
What is Vegan Eggplant Lasagna?
Last week I seemed destined to make Vegan Eggplant Lasagna.  Well, eggplant lasagna is perhaps a misnomer because it had absolutely no pasta of any kind inside.  Yet, the term lasagna seems to fit because three layers of t…

Why Bother Making Fresh Red Beet Pasta?
Recently I developed a recipe for Red Beet Ravioli with Spinach and Goat Cheese, which was absolutely yummy.  Of course, I may be a bit biased.  So don’t rely on my word, try it yourself and see how delicious is this ravioli dish!

The red beets in the pasta make the dough a vibrant purple color, which will certainly make any plate look more attractive.  The red beets also add dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and nutrients that will help you and your family remain healthy.  Contrary to common belief, red beets are not high in sugar;…

Pumpkin Sage Pasta:  an Autumn Seasonal Favorite!
As the years pass, time seems to go by faster and faster.  Thankfully, a few dishes each season help mark the time and leave us with fond memories.  The past ten years, Pumpkin Sage Pasta (pasta with a pumpkin-sage sauce) has been one of my family’s favorite dishes each autumn.   It’s tasty, healthy and easy to make.  In short, a perfect combination.

I usually prepare this yummy dish with nests of De Cecco Pappardelle egg pasta.  One box of 500 g (18 oz approximately) feeds 3 adults with robust appetites.  However, the same portion can feed…

Pumpkin Risotto

How do you make the Yummiest Pumpkin Risotto?
In the middle of pumpkin season I’m always on the lookout for new ways to include pumpkin in recipes.   A couple days ago I was having a friend over for a mid-week dinner and wanted to make something special without too much fuss.  I had been thinking of preparing Asian-inspired vegan pumpkin dumplings yet in the end opted for developing a new recipe for Pumpkin Risotto.

Risotto is a dish best made immediately before serving, which makes it a little complicated when entertaining guests.  I prefer not being busy in the kitchen when the guests ar…
