A quick, healthy and easy meal is a vegetarian baked pasta recipe. It is a light and fresh lunch or dinner dish that can be done in 30 min.
You can vary the veggies with anything, really. Use any type of pasta you like, and make it vegan by adding a vegan alternative for the cream.
This type of pasta bake, or casserole, is sometimes called pasta Primavera. Pasta Primavera is a simple dish with pasta and fresh vegetables in a cream sauce, sprinkled with parmesan.
A vegetable pasta bake is a light and summery dish, that in my opinion tastes as good hot or cold. It's also perfect for a buffet table. This recipe is both frugal, family friendly, easy to make and healthy!
Compared to a lot of pasta bake recipes, this recipe uses very little cream and cheese. The simple and great taste comes from the ingredients, and not from being "smothered" in cream and cheese.
You can replace the cream with any vegan alternative, and the parmesan too, but use a strongly flavored cheese so you won't need so much!
Serve this vegetarian baked pasta by itself for a quick and light lunch. Or serve with lightly cooked or steamed green vegetables like broccoli or green beans together with a grilled tomato as a more substantial dinner dish.
