Yes! It’s about time to pull out the cozy sweaters and dive into some pasta. I’m not a fan of being outside in the cold, but I do love the emphasis on comfort that comes with cooler temperatures. Now where are my stretchy pants?
Below, you’ll find twelve hearty (and pretty healthy) vegetarian pasta recipes that I’m looking forward to eating this fall and winter. I always opt for whole grain pastas, which keep me fueled so much longer (DeLallo brand is my favorite) and load them up with veggies. You can read feedback from C+K readers who made these recipes below.
I tried to pick recipes that feature seasonally appropriate produce for this roundup. For more pasta dishes, check out my full pasta archives and my vegetarian dinners board on Pinterest!
