Once sealed, the pasta is seared in boiling water then flavored in a pan with a drizzle of oil, flavored with sage leaves and rosemary: the result will be a creamy and fragrant dish, perfect to bring to the table for a breakfast with vegan guests or to offer for a cena alternative in the company of friends.

We completed the preparation with a pinch of vegan cheese while, for the filling, we opted for nutritional yeast which, in addition to compacting the ingredients, will also act as a natural flavor enhancer.
