Vegetarian pasta dinner
We’ve been doing the Meatless Monday thing in our house lately. To be honest, it’s not because we’re trying to be vegetarian or anything, but because we’re lazy. It’s easier to pick up a few vegetables at the store a couple of blocks away than it is to do a big shopping trip to get meat, especially on a Sunday afternoon when the big supermarkets are packed.
I love how quickly and easy it is to cook delicious vegetarian pasta recipes for dinner, and love how easy it is to incorporate lots of vegetables into our dinners.
The flavors in this vegetarian fettuccine dish
The “sauce” for the fettuccine comes from the roasted vegetables that release juices while they are roasting – all of that gets stirred into the pasta as well to make a super simple and flavorful dish.
You can find flavored olive oils on Amazon, such as this set of flavored organic extra virgin olive oils.
How to this vegetarian fettuccine recipe:
This is a super easy pasta recipe, just like it should be. Dice the vegetables, toss them with oil, salt, and pepper, and a bit of garlic powder if you want. Roast them for about 20 minutes at 400F.
While the vegetables are roasting, cook the pasta in a large pot of water. Drain the pasta, and add the roasted vegetables and all the delicious juices they released. Add some olive oil, salt, and pepper (if needed) and some freshly grated Parmesan cheese. That’s it.
So simple, right?
If you don’t have flavored olive oil on hand, no worries! Just roast some garlic along with the vegetables, mash it with a fork and stir it into the pasta. Add some fresh basil at the end and enjoy!
If you want to keep this pasta recipe vegan or vegetarian, make sure you get vegetarian or vegan Parmesan cheese.
