54 Fantastic Vegetarian Pasta Dishes
We all have come to rely on the ever-present box of pasta and the jar of marinara in the pantry when we’re in a pinch. But pasta can be oh-so-much more than your typical last-minute spaghetti and marinara dinner (no disrespect, spaghetti and marinara—we still love you).

We’ve rounded up some of the best vegan and vegetarian pasta recipes that incorporate not just traditional ingredients you probably have on hand—think garlic, tomatoes, lemon and pesto—but new spins, like sweet potato noodles, mizuna, beer, hummus and burrata, as well as our favorite cold pasta salads for warmer months.
