And you need only one pot to make it! This vegan one pot pasta really couldn’t be much easier. You just throw in all of the ingredients – including the uncooked pasta – and then cook it for about 15 minutes.
This way it’s packed with flavor and it saves you lots of time and also dirty dishes. As all my recipes, it’s of course 100 % vegan.
When I first tried one pot pasta, I was actually really skeptical. I mean it does sound a bit weird, doesn’t it? And when I shared my vegan one pot spaghetti with vegetables on my Facebook page, some people actually got really mad. Haha!
One guy even commented that this would be considered a blasphemy in Italy. Well, this vegan one pot pasta might not be a traditional pasta recipe, but it’s so darn delicious!! It’s like an Asian style one pot pasta with the coconut milk and the red curry paste. Super aromatic, a bit spicy, and sooo creamy!
