Lazy Vegan Summer Pasta

Ever have those nights where cooking sounds awful? That’s me — once a week. Don’t get me wrong, I love cooking. It’s relaxing, rewarding and (most of the time) delicious. Enter the world’s easiest pasta. Perks? It’s vegan!

I’ve been working to reduce my environmental impact. An easy step is to reduce my animal product intake. Working from home makes this easy, all it requires is a bit of thinking. Except for this recipe! You likely have all of this in your fridge already. It took less than 20 minutes and was amazing.

This pasta is:

  • Easy
  • Quick
  • Full of ingredients probably in your fridge
  • Gluten free
  • Vegan and plant-based friendly
  • Great for late summer produce

I’ll quit rambling and give you the recipe – because that’s what you really want, right?
