You don’t have to be vegetarian or vegan to enjoy vegetarian pasta. There are so many options available from eggplant pasta, zucchini pasta and sauce classic recipes like puttanesca.


We’ve rounded up some of the most delicious vegetarian pasta options for you and the family to enjoy.


Start with the pasta

There are so many options available when it comes to vegetarian pasta.

  • Fresh vegetables can be spiralised to create a delicious base for pasta sauce at approximately 20 calories and 5g of carbs for about a cup of raw zucchini. If you don’t have a spiraliser you can chop, shred or peel the zucchini into past-like shapes
  • If you don’t feel like zucchini, you could also spiralise carrots, sweet potato or mooli.
  • Slendier offers a range of vegetarian pastas that made from either super low-carb konjac, or lower carb organic bean pastas,


Next think about the sauce

There are literally thousands of vegetarian pasta sauce options, and the humble marina pasta sauce even played an important part in history! If you’re confused about the different types of tomato based pasta sauce, it’s understandable and we have an interesting article on that too!


Some options for you to consider when choosing your vegetarian pasta sauce:


Finally, the top!

There are so many options for pasta toppings or garnish beyond cheese! Some suggestions include:

  • A fresh chiffonade of herbs such as parsley or basil or a crack of black pepper are standard for most people,
  • How about some fresh cherry tomato halves and a few thinly sliced black olives?
  • For those who like heat, try red pepper flakes
  • Lemon zest is a winner on tomato-based dishes
  • Try changing up the standard gremolata (parley, garlic and lemon-zest) and try some cranberries with red wine vinegar.
  • We love toasted pine nuts as a lovely texture on a pasta dish.
