Meatless Monday Pasta Recipes

by - Monday, February 26, 2018

Every week we are exploring vegetarian meals for meat eaters. Cooking with seasonal vegetables can seem really limiting at first, but the possibilities are endless. And it is worth it. Just cutting one day of meat eating out of our diet can keep thousands of pounds of CO2 out of the atmosphere a year. No seriously, it's that big a deal. Plus, it's a great opportunity to have some new adventures and try new things. Just another way to take care of the planet AND make life a little bit better! 

I love pasta. I married an Italian boy, and if I had only married him for his lasagna, that would be enough reason. He's pretty great for other reasons, but man, that lasagna...

One of the easiest jumps from meat-eaters to meat-free is to make some pasta dishes. You can put a pasta with no meat on the plate without anyone raising an eyebrow. There are so many great recipes out there, that it felt impossible to just pick a few. So these are some favorites.

from Well-Plated
I have never really tried pasta with avocado, but this recipe from Well-Plated looks so good, and now it's happening. Avocado pasta will be had!

from How Sweet Eats
I love this pasta recipe from How Sweet Eats because it features veggies that are wintery and warm. One of the greenest things we can all do is eat with the seasons, so I am really looking to connect with the things we can get this time of year.

from Celebrating Sweets

For something totally different, you could try this vegetarian chili mac n cheese from Celebrating Sweets. I would never think of something like this, but this could be a really great meal for kids too.

from Vibrant Plate
One of our goals for this year is to try making our own ravioli, so I am always looking for recipes. This one from Vibrant Plate looks delicious and minimal (in a good way), and I really want to try it.

from Life as a Strawberry
We are starting to see asparagus pop up at the farmer's market, so that makes me excited to try this asparagus and pea (and goat cheese... oh how I love goat cheese) pasta recipe from Life as a Strawberry.

from Eat Drink Binge
And here is a vegetarian lasagna, because it is clearly important for my marriage. This one from Eat Drink Binge looks delicious.

See? So many ways to eat more carbs and fewer animals- who can complain when this many carbs are on the table?
