Can Be Pasta Vegan?
When I first told my grandmother that I was going vegan, she literally asked me just 1 question: Can you eat pasta???
Once I assured her that, with the exclusion of egg noodles, vegans can still eat many kinds of pastas–such as spaghetti, linguine, rotini, penne, farfalle, fettuccine, lasagna, fusilli, and macaroni–she was completely on board with all the vegan thing. I have never met anyone who loves pasta up to my grandma; she sometimes even ate it !
While I draw the line at pasta for breakfast, I do have an whole shelf in my pantry dedicated to different pasta brands and shapes. It’s a fantastic choice whenever you’re entertaining both vegans and omnivores, since it is simple to create a completely vegan or plant-based pasta meal that non-adventurous eaters or individuals that aren’t fans of more polarizing vegan meat substitutes can also enjoy.
Which Are Your Favorite Pasta Recipes?
Feel free to leave links to your very own go-to pasta dishes, and they definitely don’t have to be vegetarian. I love taking a look at classic non-vegan pasta recipes for inspiration and could spend hours poring through old Italian cookbooks.
*Side Note: Should you’re serving a person who’s gluten-free or following a low-carb or keto diet, then feel free to swap out the pasta in my recipes above with a gluten-free pasta, bean crackers, or perhaps spaghetti squash (see How To Cook Spaghetti Squash).
