15 vegetarian pasta recipes | easy homemade pasta recipes

Collection of 15 tasty homemade vegetarian pasta recipes from the blog.

Pasta is a favorite with kids as well as grown ups. So I do get a lot of recipe requests to add various types of vegetarian pasta recipes. I usually prepare both vegetarian versions of white sauce and red sauce pasta at times. Both recipes are a favorite at home.

A few of the pasta recipes are vegan and rest of them are vegetarian. The vegetarian pasta recipes can be easily veganized by using cashew milk or almond milk and vegan cheese.

There are different types of pasta available in the market and you can try adding them in most pasta recipes, unless mentioned in the recipe. If possible Do try to use whole wheat pasta.
