Think of all the classic comfort food pasta dishes and you'll see the same key players: butter, cream, and cheese. Which leaves our vegan friends out in the cold sans delicious pasta. This will not do! Herewith are 8 vegan-approved pasta dishes that will fill your belly and make you sigh with happiness. I have to admit, I have gained new respect for the challenges of eating vegan while assembling this collection of recipes. My goal was to find truly vegan recipes, ones that wouldn't require a note saying "substitute olive oil for the butter" or "skip the sprinkle of parmesan." But almost every Italian pasta recipe advises adding just a little pat of butter or sprinkle of parm! It started feeling a little ridiculous. I did the best I could. The cauliflower pasta recipe pictured above just looked way too good to leave out of this round-up, though yes...you'll have to "skip the parmesan." • Spaghetti with Cauliflower, Green Olives, and Almonds from GourmetRotelle with Tomato-Tofu Carbonara and Basil from Vegetarian TimesMac and Cheeze from Vegan YumYumPumpkin Pasta from Martha StewartPasta with Tomato Sauce and Eggplant from SaveurMeaty but Not Really Pasta Sauce from The KitchenistPappardelle with Roasted Veg and Sage from BBC Good FoodChunky Tomato Mushroom Sauce from The Washington Post What are your favorite vegan pasta dishes?
