15 Easy & Healthy Vegan Pasta Recipes

I LOVE pasta. But who doesn’t.

When it’s time to cook some pasta for lunch or dinner I’m always looking online for some plant-based ideas.

For the past few years I’m following a plant-based diet because I have endometriosis. (YES, my life really SUCKS). But still, I’m not complaining. Cutting out all the meat, dairy and everything I used to eat often wasn’t difficult at all.

Actually it helps a lot with endometriosis symptoms.

Now, I’m a happy plant-based girl (HAHA) and I would love to share with you some of my favorite easy and healthy vegan pasta recipes I’ve found online.

Yes, I didn’t made these, I don’t have that time. Being a busy mom and a blogger doesn’t let me spend so much time in the kitchen.

Thank you food bloggers! You’ve saved my life so many times.

So, today (finally) I’m sharing with you the best (my opinion of course) vegan pasta recipes.

YUMMY

Let me show you!
