Are you guys up for another mouth-watering spring inspired dish? I have recently made a Vegan Creamy Pasta loaded with caramelized mushrooms, sugar snap peas and onions, covered in an avocado sauce made with roasted jalapeños and roasted garlic. That sounds fabulous, right?
Since I couldn’t stop there, I topped the pasta with sweet and juicy roasted tomatoes and fresh crunchy radishes. Now that is one colorful dish, that is nutritious and delicious. To oomph the nutritional value of my pasta I used Barilla Veggie Pasta that is a tasty and effortless way to get more veggies into your diet.
I am so excited about the spring, that all I want to eat are colorful meals. A Vegan Creamy Pasta like this will satisfy your hunger, while its still light on your waist due to all those amazing veggies. I absolutely love the taste of the delicious Barilla Veggie Pasta in combination with all these beautiful veggies.
The creamy avocado sauce is definitely a staple in our house, made with roasted jalapeños and garlic, the sauce is flavorful and fragrant. I am a huge fan of caramelized mushrooms, they add the perfect amount of chewiness and earthiness to this Vegan Creamy Pasta and they compliment nicely the caramelized onions.
The snow peas and radishes add such a fun crunch and a beautiful rainbow of colors to the dish. The juicy tomatoes are the perfect sweet finish. You can totally go ahead and sprinkle some grated fresh parmesan on top for some cheese action. I kept this version vegan, as it was perfect this way.
