15 Easy Vegetarian Pasta Recipes
Our favorite vegetarian pasta recipes for maximum comfort food vibes (while being pretty healthy too!)
Our favorite dinners are the kind that can be eaten from a bowl, optimally on the couch while we decompress from the day. They’re cozy and warming and maybe even a little heavy in carbs. And when it’s a dinner like that we crave, pasta is the answer.
So we’ve rounded up our favorite vegetarian pasta recipes to give you some inspiration! While many of these are pasta in the traditional sense (the gnocchis and macaronis and lasagnas), we’ve also included a few vegetable pastas, like zucchini noodles.
So whether you’re watching your carbs or are ready to dive head first into a bowl of carb laden spaghetti, we’ve got you covered.
