I’m on a 10 day adventure of trying a vegetarian diet! Ever since I watched Forks over Knives, and read the Omnivores Dilema I’ve pretty much wanted to become Vegan, or at least get my meat from a very reliable source, (e.g. Fish that I caught from a lake … or ACTUAL free range Chickens that I’ve butchered.)
Last Christmas my Mother-In-Law got me this book, because she knew I was interested in
 Vegetarian cooking!
So today I finally cooked something from it! I will try to blog, and maybe even start taking quality photos once and a while… my co-worker Mole was interested, and I told her I’d blog about it… so here I go. A food blog! Bare with me. I’m used to blogging about a pre-schooler!
Bow Ties with Pesto & Beans
12 oz Bow-tie pasta
1 onion chopped
1 red bell pepper, cut into short strips
1 can (14oz) cannellini beans rinsed and drained
1/3 cup prepared pesto
Cook the pasta. Drain and reserve 1/2 cup of cooking liquid.
Coat a large non-stick pan with cooking spray or about 1T of EVOO, and warm over medium-heat for 1 minute. Add the pepper and onion. Season with salt & pepper. Cook about 4-5 minutes or until tender and set aside in a large serving dish.
Add the beans
Pesto & reserved cooking liquid/water
Add the pasta
and toss!
Finished with an ice cold class of Almond Milk!
A little light on the sauce- I maybe would add a tiny bit more pesto…
