Just when I thought red pasta couldn’t get any better, I discovered the magic that is roasted red peppers.
Creamy, velvety, savory, and subtly sweet, it makes the perfect flavor companion to vegan parmesan and fresh herbs in this 10-ingredient Vegan and Gluten Free pasta.
The magic starts with sautéed shallot and garlic to give the sauce a robust and subtly sweet base. In the meantime, roast up some red peppers until soft, charred and delicious. This will give your sauce that gorgeous orange hue and creamy texture.
To keep this pasta gluten free I went with a gluten free spaghetti noodle and used cornstarch as my thickener instead of a traditional flour roux. The result was a creamy, thick sauce just begging to be tossed with perfectly al dente noodles.
The sauce gets its flavor from four sources:
1. Sautéed garlic & shallot
2. Roasted red pepper
3. Nutritional yeast
4. Salt, pepper and red pepper flake
Together this combination provides the perfect balance of savory, sweet and heat, while fresh parsley adds a touch of freshness.
You’re going to love this pasta. It’s
Vegan + GF
Customizable (add a protein, additional herbs, veggies)
And totally satisfying
Make this dish for a simple-but-healthy weeknight meal, or reserve it for gatherings with friends who have special dietary needs.
Use whatever noodles you like – gluten free or not, or even spiralized veggies! And feel free to add a bit more protein of choice for extra staying power, although most gluten free noodles I’ve found provide ample protein and fiber.

Hi guys! Sorry about taking last week off of blogging. I was in Boston on a little vacation with some of my friends from college. We had an unbelievable time baking cookies (new recipe coming soon), exploring the North End, running around Southie, and laughing until we couldn’t anymore. Life is good! I’ll have a...
