There are few things as satisfying as a big bowl of pasta, and this collection of vegetarian pasta recipes holds something to tempt everyone. When planning your menu it's worth noting that, while all of these pasta recipes are meat-free, some contain Parmesan, so please do substitute for a suitable vegetarian alternative (such as Twineham Grange) as needed.
For an easy pasta supper, Paul Heathcote's spinach spaghetti piemontesi is simplicity at its best, and can be rustled up in under half an hour, so is perfect for a midweek meal.
If you've got a bit more time, try making the pasta yourself. Food doesn't come much fresher than Josh Eggleton's tagliatelle with tomato sauce, with the classic Italian pairing of tomatoes and basil. It may seem daunting initially, but our how to cook fresh pasta guide will help you master this rewarding technique.
