Pasta is a popular component of  any meal, and vegetarian pasta recipes  are a delicious and nutritious option. Whether you are vegetarian, catering to vegetarians, or looking for ‘meatless Monday’ inspiration, pasta is an ideal choice. It’s easy to cook as it comes pre-made, either dried or fresh.   Farmer’s markets often sell beautiful handmade pastas . If you’re feeling particularly intrepid, you can try making your own pasta from scratch. It can take a while to get right but the results  make it worth persevering. Whole wheat pasta is more nutritious  than the more processed varieties, and can be used in any pasta recipe. There are also many gluten-free pasta options available, so if you’re catering to a GF vegetarian pasta can still be a great choice. There are many delicious pasta recipes available online. Several popular recipes include:

Caramelized Onion Lasagne. Portobello mushrooms, spinach and Gorgonzola cheese make up the bulk of this lasagne recipe, while caramelized onion creates a rich sweetness that permeates through each layer.  White sauce  gives the dish a  creamy, delicious  texture, with walnuts and ricotta cheese for  additional richness, flavour and nutrition.

Fresh Egg Pasta. For those who want to try making their own pasta from scratch, this recipe makes it simple. Containing just egg and flour,  the main challenge is getting the dough right. The recipe gives instructions for making pasta with or without a pasta machine.

Lime Orzo. Orzo (also known as risoni) is a popular type of pasta shaped like large grains of rice. It is extremely versatile and can be used in soups, salads, risotto dishes, casseroles or served alone. Lime orzo is a hearty, satisfying dish that can be prepared on the stove-top. Lime juice and lime zest make this simple pasta dish come to life. Canned tomatoes and vegetable broth make the preparation quick and  simple.

Lasagne Pie. Combine two great things to make one truly excellent dish. Three kinds of Italian cheese lie between sheets of soft pasta noodles. Fresh vegetables and baby greens add a nutritious boost to the recipe. Topped with sliced tomatoes and aromatic herbs, it’s perfect for a special occasion, or when you want to treat yourself.

Pasta is a great comfort food, and is suitable for dinner parties or quick meals at home.  It can be  frozen for a delicious hot meal almost instantly. Vegetarian pasta dishes tend to be based around fresh vegetables, making them extra nutritious.
