Simple yet so delicious; this creamy pesto pasta is packed with flavour and because it is so easy to make, it is the perfect midweek treat.

If you haven’t caught on by now, we’re super into comfort food over here. This is one of those amazing recipes you want in your back pocket for days when you need something on the table, and you need it fast.

Requiring only 4 ingredients and around 12 minutes to make, this vegan pesto pasta recipe is a real winner. I know what you’re thinking though. Traditional pesto isn’t suitable for vegans due to one of its key ingredients – parmesan cheese. This is the only tricky part about this recipe. Luckily, brands like Meridian Foods and Sacla have come out with vegan friendly pesto that tastes just like the real thing. Both of these brands are widely available in the UK, I usually get my jars from either Waitrose or Holland & Barrett.

To make this pesto pasta recipe even more filling, why not add crispy pan-fried tofu. Yum!

Once the pasta is cooked, drain the pasta and mix with the creamy pesto sauce, stirring to coat the pasta completely. Enjoy hot or cold.
