That's when my inner chef took over, and I set out on a midnight culinary adventure using treasures from The Market at the University of Bath, all prepped and ready to go. Armed with a hunger that could rival a wolf's, I whipped up a vegan masterpiece that ticked all the right boxes.

Paired with the Dairy Free Parmigiana Sauce, it transformed into a delectable dance of flavours that harmonized perfectly with my nocturnal appetite. A dash of seasonings from my student-sized pantry elevated the dish from ordinary to extraordinary, igniting fireworks display of taste that would rival any Michelin-starred creation.

As I savoured each forkful, the clock seemed to tick a little slower, allowing me to fully relish the deliciousness that emerged from my midnight kitchen escapade. The final flourish – vegan cheese, basil leaves, and sundried tomatoes – was like a culinary mic drop, adding bursts of freshness and texture that had me wondering why I hadn't tried this sooner.
