I really want to give this a go.

Huch confirmed... it just did not look as tasty as yours .... no shame, you certainly made up for it with the rest, and this black pot shan't chastise you over the lack of using their own cheese ;)

I'm afraid it was just a bought one Rob.  (Oh the shame!)

Delicious, and done well Andy! ... Now, was that Andy feta?

For the allergic, Mushrooms are toxic. Even though Elaine is not allergic, she doesn't dig Mushrooms like I do (nor Corn, either).

How can someone not like mushrooms?!  (Although I noticed my Saudi students won't touch them.)

I see dinner at your house one night :) to experience first hand your ideas.

If you like Mushrooms then they are a vegetable high-protein source.

There's spaghetti squash of course and I've seen zucchini used as pasta, and cauliflower (just blanched briefly) as rice.  When I make my vego sauce I blitz carrot, cauliflower and zucchini instead of minced beef and then just add fried onion and diced tomatoes.  You can of course then cheer it up with olives, cheese, capsicum etc.  It actually ends up pretty good.

Good way to use up excess greens, Andy, especially if you are into cheese making as well.  The cheese really appeals to me, and I love nutmeg on vegies. Well done.

Do you have a recipe or suggestion for a meatless spaghetti,  where you can use legumes instead of pasta, and also add cheeses.
