I love pasta. I love pesto. Therefore, it goes without saying that I LOVE pesto with pasta! Obviously, the traditional recipe for pesto has Parmesan cheese, so it is a no-no for use vegans, but this recipe does away with that and the pesto sauce contains just basil, olive oil, salt, garlic, nutritional yeast and pine nuts. You won’t miss the Parmesan – I promise! The nutritional yeast helps by adding the cheesy flavor that you will miss due to the lack of Parmesan. So swap out the pesto in the Summer Pesto Pasta recipe for a vegan pesto (either shop bought, or made from a recipe similar to the one above) and enjoy!
