Recipe #2 for vegan holiday meal ideas! This dish can honestly be served year round. Honestly, who can turn down pasta? I found this recipe via Minimalist Baker. It’s hands down the easiest and tastiest recipe I’ve ever recreated! I guarantee this dish will have both your vegan and non-vegan guests screaming for more!
I’m literally craving this pesto sauce as I’m typing. My husband was my taste tester and said this pasta salad was delicious. He also said he had no idea it was plant based.
This dish is gluten free, creamy, tangy, cheesy, healthy, packed with flavor while surprisingly satisfying and QUICK to make!
The base for this recipe is gluten free penne. I used Barilla but you can use any brand you like. I also roasted some cherry tomatoes and made a super easy homemade pesto sauce along with vegan parmesan cheese.
You can serve immediately or serve at room temperature. This delicious pasta salad can also be served cold. I enjoyed it both ways! You can refrigerate this dish up to 4 days.
