Pasta, let's not be afraid of loud statements, a brilliant dish. It can be prepared very quickly and often from improvised ingredients.

In addition, in the heat, the pasta goes well cold. We have collected 10 vegetarian and vegan pasta recipes, each of which can be further improved to your taste and taking into account your own beliefs - whether you add cheese or jamon brought back from your vacation.
