Pasta Perfecta

The Chef: Aurelia

The Menu: Does anyone not like pasta salad? Today we got treated to amazing, creamy pasta salad created by Ms. Aurelia. Carrots, broccoli, peas, and fresh tomatoes made this delicious dish just a tad healthier than your average bowl of nice, warm pasta. Oh on the side there? That's right, it's breadsticks. Fresh from the oven with garlic and Parma twisted inside the ready-made dough, these little suckers were as tasty as they were toasty warm. And, of course, like in all of Aurelia's wonderful meals, the salad today was exceptional. Avocados, hearts of palm, and shredded carrots topped butter lettuce and made a perfect pairing with the veggies in the pasta.

The Goods: Today we fed the masses. It's a real treat to have invited guests join us for lunch, and today we got them in spades. Some of our special guest stars today included Laurie Bradley, our amazing West Coast Sales Rep; Paul Saccone, a long-time friend of VegNews; and Robert Cheeke, vegan pro-body builder extraordinaire. Here's the whole gang, though of course it's impossible to get 12 people all smiling and looking at the camera at once.
