The Meat Free Monday Cookbook
It isn’t immediately obvious why the Italians call short tubes of pasta cut at an angle penne (feathers) but if you look at the nib of an old-fashioned quill pen, the name starts to make sense. Brassicas and cheeses often go well together. Here, broccoli is combined with sweet, creamy mascarpone and gorgonzola dolcelatte to make an irresistible sauce, which oozes into the penne and sticks to their ridged sides.Recipe courtesy of The Meat Free Monday Cookbook edited by Annie Rigg © 2016 Kyle Books, and the photographs © Tara Fisher.

Spelt Penne alla Vodka
Even if you're like me and can barely suppress an eye roll at the mention of words like "healthy grains," I guarantee that you'll like spelt — and specifically spelt pasta. It legitimately tastes like the real thing — none of that dense, chewy texture you get with other alternative grains. And while I'm not 100 percent sure I'm justified in feeling a lot less guilty about eating pasta when it's made with spelt, I definitely do, which is a real bonus. See all quinoa recipes.

When you have the best ingredients of the season on hand, in this case, ripe summer cherry tomatoes and zucchini blossoms, you really don't want to mess with them too much. And especially in the summer, nobody wants to have their stove or oven going if they can avoid it, and if it's really necessary to turn it on, only ever so briefly. That was the thinking behind this recipe, and minimizing the cooking time preserves the natural flavor of the tomatoes as much as possible. The sauce will be thin but flavorful; make sure to use a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil because its flavor will really come through, and to use good-quality pasta with a coarse texture that will really absorb the sauce — look for pastas made with a bronze die.
