The basics for great Vegetarian Pasta Recipes
First, we cannot stress this enough, cook your pasta the right way. The pasta should not be cooked completely; this is called “Al Dente”. It give a bite to all vegetarian pasta recipes.
According to 10/10 vegetarians you don’t need meat or fish in your pasta to make it taste nice.
Pick any vegetable you like. Chop them, fry them, do whatever makes you feel good to make your own vegetarian pasta recipes work. Please use seasonal vegetables for all your vegetarian pasta recipes if possible.
To give it some spark, to your recipe use herbs, garlic or any other flavor enhancer to give some edge to your pasta. To be clear you to all carnivores, bacon is not an herb…
Olives really make vegetarian pasta recipes stand out. Capers, if you like them, also enhance the flavor. But again, any ingredient goes as long as you think it should be in your recipe.
For some bite you may use some raw carrots. But also nuts such as cashew, pistachios, or almonds and peanuts go great with pasta! Grill some pine-nuts and serve them on top of your pasta!
Last but not least is the cheese. Cook the cheese in your sauce, let it melt over your pasta or just serve it on the side! If you like strong tasting cheeses, try some matured Italian cheeses such as Pecorino, Parmasan or blue cheese! Ricotta and Caprino cheese are great to mix with stir-fried vegetables.
