Expert Tips and FAQs
Here are some great tips and tricks for the best vegan pasta every single time:
Salt the water. Pasta is a great easy dinner, but don’t be afraid of the salty water! You want your pasta boiling water to taste as salty as an ocean to get a little flavor into the noodles.
Switch it up. You can add or swap any veggies you love for all of these recipes. I recommend sautéing or roasting them before adding them into the pasta. And don’t forget the seasonings!
Perfect for meal prep. Pasta dishes only get better overnight! Make a big batch of any of these vegan pasta recipes on a lazy Sunday and enjoy it all week long.
Make it gluten free. You can make any of these dishes gluten-free with a simple noodle swap! Use your favourite shapes and varieties with all these vegan pasta sauces.
