As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:

“I enjoy all the recipes on these pages, but this one is probably my favorite. The first time I made it, I made a huge salad to bring to a barbecue where many of the foods were vegetarian. It had more flavor than any of the meats and all tastes great together. For another recipe that I really like, check out the roasted red pepper and tofu panini . It has such a great flavour and looks great too.”

“”The best thing about this dish is it’s so easy! It only takes about 15 mins.”

“I love spaghetti with Rosé sauce, but this looks great. I will be making it when it gets cooler here in Florida.”

“I used to make something similar when I was in school. It is easy peasy and super delicious”

“This looks lovely and I love the colour of spaghetti, so fresh and inviting.”

“I asked my wife to say a few words about your recipe: “Looks and sounds delicious. I would definitely cook it for our guests.”

“My boyfriend and I thought this was absolutely delicious and it’s easy to make, we each ate a whole bowl. It tastes like the real thing and people even thought we made it from scratch. We will be making it regularly now as well as eating other vegan dishes that this recipe has inspired us to try.”

“I decided to make this recipe as I love all those types of foods, especially those ingredients. The result was great, my husband and children loved it.”

And a little note before I will finally say goodbye to y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
