This is a story about the greatest pasta salad that ever was. My friend Cara’s dad has this recipe for pasta salad that is indescribably addictive. Something about the combination of vinegar, sugar and salt is so powerfully compelling that sometimes you eat an entire box of pasta before you notice what’s happened. Cara kindly taught me to make this wondrous thing, but when I changed my diet, away went crack pasta and its necessary parmesan cheese.
But then, I learned to make vegan parmesan cheese and the door to true happiness reopened. Once again the wonders of crack pasta were possible, and frankly, I think it might be better than ever–not to mention better for you. Below are the secrets, just make sure you have some kind of pasta support group to help pry the fork out of your hands.
