Sautéed Portobello Mushroom Pasta

Well, it’s the middle of SweetlessWheatless’ Meatless May! I’ve given up meat for a month, to try it out and give myself a new food challenge. It honestly hasn’t been as much work as I thought it might be, as I don’t eat meat that often. Vegetarianism has been on my mind for a while; mostly because of the terrible conditions most of the farm animals live in. Healthy, grass-fed meat that lives in a natural environment is so crucial. However, whether you’re a vegetarian, paleo, meat-eater, or anything in between, this recipe is an easy way to get your veggies in.IMG_0157 IMG_0156  Recipe creations have been a bit scarce lately, and I was hoping to have more Meatless-May recipes ready for you, but it’s just been a crazy month! This weekend I had two marvelous days off to myself, with nothing in particular to do.Those kinds of weekend don’t come around very often, and I relished every minute of it. Also, I finally had the chance to do some experimenting in the kitchen, and am happy to have this recipe to post tonight.IMG_0159

Portobello mushrooms are so juicy and full of flavour, and they soak up the balsamic sauce wonderfully! Add some broccoli and pasta and you’ve got a filling, nutritious dish.
