Description

40 Best Pasta Recipes that are all veggie-loaded. Easy, healthy and delicious, these pasta dishes are vegetarian, vegan or vegan-adaptable: How to Cook Pasta.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 quarts water (8 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 8 ounces of pasta
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil- optional

Instructions

  1. Place water and salt in a medium pot and bring to boil over high heat. Add optional olive oil ( to prevent sticking)
  2. Add the dry pasta and give a stir. Bring to boil, lower heat so the pot is gently simmering, uncovered.
  3. Cook until the pasta is soft but still has a little bite to it. Depending on the pasta this time will vary so always check package instructions.
  4. Drain, always saving a cup of hot pasta water.
  5. Use right away, or see notes for storing.

Notes

If storing for later, rinse the pasta in cold water until cooled. Drain. Toss generously with olive oil and place in a shallow open container in the fridge. Cover it only after it is completely cold. The idea here is to cool pasta as quickly as possible to prevent unwanted bacteria from growing.

  1. I used roasted broccoli tonight and subbed the hemp seeds for the cashews. I loved the result! Much lighter. I too have tried many of the vegan pasta dishes, the carrot orechiette, all of the lasagnas (the polenta one is, wow), the roast cauliflower pasta, the buccatini, the ziti with no-cook noodles. LOVE this blog. It’s saved me during this pandemic. I try new recipes every week. Keep it coming! K

  2. We have made so many of these vegan pasta dishes. Thanks for making it so easy to be vegan. Your tofu ricotta is a god-send.

  3. I have made so many of these and love them all. My top 3 are Broccoli Orechiette, Thai Noodle Salad and the Asparagus Pasta! So good!

  4. This looks like a fab dish – thanks for sharing! My Himself loves this kind of meal, shall have to make it for him as a treat as we don’t often have fish in the house (I don’t eat it)
