Broccoli Mushroom Tetrazzini. Fall is coming, and we need quick and easy dinners that are also healthy and delicious. Broccoli Mushroom Tetrazzini is that, ready in 40 minutes, delightfully satisfying, tasty and healthy. For the pasta, I used Trader Joe’s Red Organic Lentil Sedanini (not sponsored), although you can use any gluten free pasta that you have on hand. The lentil pasta is a refreshing change from the standard flour pastas that I typically use– it actually tasted like lentils, had more protein and fiber than traditional pasta, and was yummy. This dish is vegan, gluten free and dairy free, of course.

- *There are many recipes for Vegan Parmesan on the internet. I don't claim that this is an original creation--these are just the ingredients that I use to get the taste that I want in the Vegan Parmesan Cheese.
