I'm not usually one to cook things I see on the Food Network. Heck, I'm not usually one to watch the Food Network. Until recently. I blame my sister. After watching the Food Network Star show with her, I decided I wanted to watch a little Giada At Home. Giada was making this lovely pasta dish and I could hardly wait to try it out: Penne with Brown Butter, Arugula and Pine Nuts
A few easy subs and it was gluten & soy-free and vegan: Soy Free Earth Balance for the Butter, Corn Fusilli (they were out of penne) from Trader Joe's, and vegan Parmesan (I used the recipe from Yellow Rose Recipes)
It sounded like a ton of work, but I had it all done in just over the time it took to boil the water & cook the pasta. You could see all the colors better in person, especially from those cute little heirloom tomatoes. She suggested those on the show though not on the written recipe. The lemon dressing brightened it up and the capers gave just the perfect bite.
Super yummy and super filling!
