WALNUT & MUSHROOM RAGU 🍝 right boys n girls here’s the most simple, quick & fresh pasta recipe which I whipped up last night for the live cook off with @madebyblitz 😎 truuust me here: if you want to make an impressive yet cheap vegan meal for a date/ dinner party/ yourself this dish is the oneeee 😏 as I said, for this I often use pecans instead of walnuts cause of a weird asf birch tree allergy so if you have that allergy too or don’t have walnuts just sub pecans !!
