If you are not familiar with carbonara pasta it’s a classic Italian dish that was created in the mid-20th century. It’s a pasta dish made with eggs, cheese, bacon or pancetta, and spaghetti noodles. Otherwise a very creamy and filling dish.

I stumbled upon this vegan version that uses shiitake mushrooms as bacon (genius idea) and a yummy creamy sauce you can make in no time.

Check out the photos of this dish it looks awesome and yes it’s totally vegan, yay!

In this recipe they use rice linguine which makes this recipe also gluten free. Double bonus!

I’d like to add sun-dried tomatoes and green peas when I cook this pasta dish.
