This is such an easy pasta dish to make and it's filled with a creamy garlic flavour. You can probably whip this up in less than 20 minutes. It's perfect for dinner after work and if you double the serving, it can last you a couple days. Unfortunately this dish is not entirely meatless though it may look so. Parmigiana cheese uses cow stomach or rennet to produce this cheese but the bright news is there is vegan Parmesan cheese available at select grocers or you can opt to use another cheese that doesn't use rennet. I had a block of parmigiana leftover that I needed to finish so I decided to use it for this recipe instead of wasting it.
In this recipe, I'm using Mushroom Broth by Pacific Foods. I love their broths because they're organic, easy to use and most of their products are verified non-GMO.
