This has very simple ingredients I always have on hand so its a great quick meal idea. Mac and cheese is such a comfort food for me, so it is great to be able to make a homemade version so quickly.

There are a few different ways to make a creamy sauce without the cream. You can use a plant-based milk and flour mixture, you can use cashew cream, or a vegetable broth base.

It is loaded with garlic to make this the perfect creamy garlic pasta and it is tossed with a little bit of olive oil and sun-dried tomatoes.

Creamy Pasta Primavera

This isn't a Sigsbee Street recipe, it is from Ambitious Kitchen, but it is one of my favorite creamy vegan recipes so I had to share. It is loaded with fresh veggies and lots of fresh garlic. The best part, is after soaking the cashews the pasta comes together in 20 minutes!

What to Serve with Creamy Vegetarian Pasta

If you are having a creamy sauce you might want something light and fresh to have along side of it. One of my go-to side dish is a fresh salad.

You could also serve this with a crusty bread like a french baguette or garlic bread to help soak up all those extra flavors.

How to Serve Leftover Pasta

When you have a creamy pasta you may find it doesn’t reheat the same as when you have it fresh. Store leftovers pasta is in an airtight container in the fridge. The perfect way to reheat your pasta is to add a little bit of water to help thin out the sauce while you reheat it. When it sits in the fridge it starts to dry out so adding in that water helps heat up the pasta as well as make the sauce creamy again.

I hope you enjoy these. Let me know what your favorite creamy vegetarian pasta recipe is!
