It is usually fairly easy to get people to eat something vegan if white pasta is involved, and this dish is no exception. This can be made even healthier with whole wheat pasta, but there is nothing wrong with indulging once in a while. So go nuts and eat some white pasta, okay? This is delicious enough that you may not miss the parmesan cheese, so give it a try without. If you think it tastes like feet, you can add some later, okay?
