Penne with Gorgonzola, baby spinach & walnuts (Vegetarian)

Creating and planning vegetarian dishes is easy if you have inspiration. It’s also easy to be vegetarian if you know how to cook and prepare delicious dishes consisting of colorful and flavorful vegetables. Don’t get me wrong, vegetarian diet doesn’t consist of just vegetables, but they’re the best part because they bring so much flavour to the whole dish. I’m not a vegetarian, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy rich flavorful vegetarian dishes, prepared by my friends or when eating out.

The reason why I even tried preparing vegetarian dishes and giving them a chance when eating out, was a friend of mine who is vegetarian. I never believed how delicious and fulfilling vegetarian dishes can be, and actually are. Most of my friends who aren’t vegetarian don’t even want to give some of those dishes a try, thinking that they aren’t as tasty or as fulfilling. Let me tell you now – they are, give them a chance, you won’t regret it!
