  1. YO DUDES! Thanks for checking out the video!! We can't wait to bring you some nice summer dishes now that its just around the corner!! Let us know what you'd like to see made! 😄😄

  2. Hellodollypartondj

    NO garlic???

  3. I do hate olives but I will give it a try. I’m going to add some spinach as well.

  4. Smallville Boyd

    Your videos make me soooooo HAPPY!

  5. Quite right to omit the raisins, a frightful addition. Catalan spinach with pine nuts and raisins gains from the same omission. Down with them, I say, who wants tiny bombs of sickly sweetness exploding in their mouth when they are peacefully chewing their pasta?

  6. Ingredients:

    2 tbsp oil
    2 Red onions chopped finely
    1 Aubergine/Egg plant cubed
    1 Courgette chopped small
    1 red pepper chopped
    1 yellow pepper chopped
    Kalamata olives chopped
    600g cherry tomatoes
    1 tsp salt
    Lid on to stew
    Steam for 10-15 min

    2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
    50g fresh basil – add half to the mixture
    250g cooked penne pasta
    Vegan cheese parmesan or cheddar
    Handful pine nuts
    Bake 8 minutes

    More vegan cheese and rest of fresh basil to finish!

  7. 😍😍😍

  8. Hazel Juanita Millan-Hoffman

    I hate olives. LOL

  9. Amazing you guys!<3

  10. This looks yum. I'm going to do this recipe exactly the way you guys did it. Cooking with eggplant has always been a challenge for me. My poor basil plant will be ravished again.

  11. theveganhotspot

    never know what to do with eggplant (besides baba ganoush) – this sounds really good <3

  12. This looks soooooo good!!!!!

  13. Fabulous movie! Sitting here at Y&S FOOD! we adore to run across this type of contents. We create Travel & Food video as well, around the the world, and also we are habitually looking to get inspirations and also good ideas. Thank You.

  14. Blythe Aurnia Nádúr

    As always that looks super Yummers!! 😊❤

  15. Vilma Lydia Soler de Bock

    Thanks 🌷

  16. I don't know how the Italian fellas feel about this Happy-pear-way capotana. But as a French person, I definitely call this a ratatouille. (It still looks amazing though)

  17. could you freeze this before it goes in the oven and then reheat it in the oven?

  18. How many does this serve guys?

  19. You guys are too cuteness, can't even concentrate properly on the recepes😂 😘😂😍😂

  20. Elaine Campbell

  27. Madalina Zbranca

    I love your videos! You are so funny, invested in what you do and full of life! You motivate people with your attitude and channel!
    Also, I just listened to you on the vevolution podcast. You have an amazing journey and drive! And you are the proof that when you really want something and go after that thing, you really make it! Thanks for all!

  28. I'm from Italy and that looks even better than the original 🙂 Next one you can try pasta with vegan ragù !

  29. Wild About Nature

    I don’t like raisins and celery in pasta either 😝 How about a Spanakopita like recipe for summer?

  30. I have not been able to find a vegetarian cheese that is tasty. What type of vegetarian cheese would you recommend?
