Great recipes and I love your voice over – so soothing and mellow👌

Sue Johns says:

Fantastic and if your other half isn’t veggie you can add any meat with them.

Stephanie x says:

i love pasta

Danielle Locke says:

These look yummy, although parmesan isn't vegetarian, but vegetarian hard cheeses are just as good so easily swapped.

Lynn Finney says:

Hi Luke hope your well lovely recipes 😀! I'm not vegetarian but I think I'm going to try some of these recipes as it doesn't look as if I'll miss any meat so that's got to be good right ? Might I ask which sort of knife do you think is the sharpest I've bought loads and none of them seem very good even when I've paid a lot for them I've not bought the cheapest by any means but frankly they are all rubbish as I say I'm not vegetarian and I'm sorry to ask you this but sometimes I need a good knife for a carvary especially at Christmas . Thank you for your help sorry to be a pest sending lots of love x keep the videos coming xx

Sue G says:

Going to make the BNS mac n cheese tomorrow…wish me well ! Love all your videos Luke 😀

Mags H says:

I used a vegetarian recipe book tonight and made spicy, eggplant and penne pasta for supper tonight. You my dear Luke inspired me to go outside my comfort zone. If I knew how to add a photo I would attach one here on YouTube 😘

I am SO hungry right now! Fantastic receipes!

Gigi says:

My favorite aubergine dish is my variation of Mark Bittman's Pasta alla Norma My Way (Google, it's a NYTimes recipe). My changes to his recipe: I roast the aubergine and tomatoes (very much like you did). I use glass baking dishes to roast them in, but that may not be necessary but I always heard not to use metal dishes with aubergine or tomatoes. In a separate glass baking dish, I roast the cherry tomatoes with a lot of olive oil (be generous, this makes your sauce), garlic, thyme, salt and pepper, until they burst. When I combine it all with the pasta, I use good crumbled feta because my store doesn't carry ricotta salata (which is very different than plain ricotta. I love the tang the Feta adds and don't think regular ricotta is a good sub). I add A LOT more fresh basil than he calls for, which is already a lot. (Maybe 20 leaves of fresh basil, chiffonaded, just for my serving) In effort, this is about 10 minutes, or less, and it is my favorite pasta, not just my favorite aubergine pasta, but favorite of all.
