  3. Toss pasta with olive oil and garlic mixture. Add the parsley, salt and ground black pepper to taste. Serve with fresh grated Parmesan cheese.

Parmesan cheese

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
