Okay, so I know you’re thinking “enough with the chitchat. Let’s get to the recipe” so here it is. Let’s start out by answering the most frequently asked questions I get, then we’ll move on to the details, so you can get cooking.

What vegan cheese is best to use in Pasta?

That’s a difficult question to answer, because everyone has a different taste experience with vegan cheeses. Here’s a couple of my favorite vegan cheese options for this recipe (but always choose your own favorite):

  • Vegan cashew cheese 
  • Silken tofu
  • Vegan mozzarella cheese 
  • For a extra cheesy flavor, add 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast to the pasta.

What kind of pasta should I use?

Any type of pasta will work in this recipe. I find that larger pasta like pasta penne, tagliatelle and similar works best to scoop up the sauce and veggies…but any and all types of pasta and spaghetti noodles can be used. 

Gluten-free Caramelized Beets and peppers option 

If you need a gluten-free pasta dish, then this recipe is a great choice. Just replace the regular pasta with gluten-free pasta of your choice. Rice pasta, corn pasta or my favorite gluten-free choice lentil pasta will all work great in this dinner.
