I always found it amusing that rice and pasta directions ask for the additional of oil in cooking. Why? I don't have a clue. In fact, it is a complete culinary lie. Oil does not improve the cooking of rice or pasta, nor does it aid in less sticking or anything for that matter.

  • 45 minutes
  • Medium




Cooking without fat does not mean sacrificing flavor. I have never understood why people boast the use of olive oil in virtually everything. Olive oil, or any oil for that matter, doesn’t taste like anything. And regardless of if origin, oil is fat, and fat causes a variety of diseases; plain and simple.

In today’s world, so many pastas exist, it is almost like shopping in the cereal aisle in the grocery store……garbanzo bean pasta, lentil pasta, edamame pasta; the list continues. Most newer pastas lend to gluten-free eating, which in the last few years, transformed the pasta industry and has created a plethora of eating options that never existed in the past. Most pastas are egg-free, but you always need to check. The best pastas, of course, are made from very few simple ingredients. The less processed the better. Those who scruff at pasta as high carb,  low nutrition, are the same people who pour olive oil on their food.

I LOVE pasta, and I eat it often. Like vegetables, there are thousands of different kinds, shapes, and types. Pasta provides the foundation for so many culinary creations. The varieties of noodles available, the different types of sauces, and other ingredient possibilities, make it easy to create a new dishes.

Roasted tomatoes provide a beautiful, bright, red contrast to the color of the noodles, sauce and mushrooms. It brings a vibrant color to the dish, but roasting them brings out their zesty flavor. I chose a Capellini noodle, because their spiral shape lend to sauce sticking in the nooks and crannies. The mushrooms provide a meaty texture but also absorb the sauce and flavors with their porous constitution.

This dish is thick, creamy, and delicious without adding any oil, or vegan butter. The sauce can also be used on potatoes, rice, or roasted vegetables, but there is never any extra sauce at my house.
