7 Vegan Pasta Dishes for the Perfect Italian Night In

7 Vegan Pasta Recipes for the Perfect Comfort Feast

Loosen your belt. Everyone deserves a good noodle night.

There are very few things a good bowl of pasta cannot fix. Am I right?

Pasta is also arguably an OG vegan dish. How many of us have ordered noodles with plain sauce at restaurants because it was the only vegan dish on the menu? Luckily, for the most part, those days are behind us. 

Vegan dishes have evolved incredibly over the last decade and vegan pasta is no different. And when it comes to cooking up pasta at home our options are unlimited. 

For this round-up, we wanted to find delicious, plant-based spins on all of those traditional pasta dishes. From pesto to lasagna, and everything in between, we’ve got the recipes for you.

Looking to add an extra spin on pasta night? Noodles have had a glow-up of their own over the last few years as well. For penne, spaghetti, and other traditional noodles we recommend giving chickpea noodles a try. They cook just like wheat pasta but pack a nice protein punch! And for lasagna, we are big fans of the lentil noodle version. Extra filling, extra healthy, and extra protein.

And if that wasn’t enough, pasta dishes are so easy to add extra veggies into. Elevate any of these dishes with some green like zucchini, spinach, or asparagus. Have your pasta and your veggies, too.
