Vegan bucatini with soy curls, fresh tomatoes, and basil

Image
  A couple months ago I moved from Vancouver to Ottawa. I will save the story for another post. After staying in a hotel for over a month I am finally in my own apartment. I am still getting settled but I was ready to cook a meal.  The area I moved to has everything in walking distance. The neighbourhood has so many good restaurants, shops, and cafes. The area also has a farmers market where I purchased the amazing looking basil and tomato’s. The olive oil is from a specialty oil store. The bottle I bought was from a brand new batch that was delivered today. The vegan cashew cheese was from a vegan festival that was held a few days ago. I bought these ingredients because I wanted to make pasta. I used to use my always pan often when I was in Vancouver I gave it to my aunt before moving. I bought a new set of the always pot and pan. When I only had the pan I always wished I had the pot for cooking pasta. My mom had given me some bucatini that she hadn’t used and I had some soy curls in

PC Brand Ravioli Grandi - Heirloom Tomato and Burrata Cheese

I bought this ravioli at superstore for $4.99. The description on the box in summary said Tender oversized Ravioli with a filling made from heirloom tomatoes and burrata cheese. The pasta is made in Italy and it was a very light pasta with a good amount of filling.  I liked that I could hold the ravioli without it falling apart in my hands yet the pasta was really thin. The filling inside was a good amount with the cheese separated from the tomato. I really liked the flavour in the filling as it was well seasoned. The box said it would be good drizzled with olive oil I tried that on one piece after I had eaten a few plain from the pot. I liked it plain better there was already good flavour in it so I found the olive oil overpowered the flavour.  I really liked this pasta it is so light that I had to stop myself from eating the whole package in one meal. To get any pasta similar to this I would have to go to an authentic Italian restaurant where I am sure it would cost me upwards of $1
