Whenever I create a new one-pot pasta recipe, I combine the flavors I love. Lemon, for instance, makes the best sauces and dressings, so I decided to make a lemon pasta recipe in one pot in under 20 minutes. If you ever want a quick and easy meal, lemon pasta is not only easy, its super creamy.
Often, people ask me how I eat pasta and stay so thin. Even though some people avoid carbohydrates, I embrace them! What makes all the difference in the world is what ingredients go into the pasta recipe, and how much pasta one eats.
Since my lemon pasta recipe is plant-based and full of green, healthy vegetables, it’s a win-win! So, don’t run away from pasta; instead, load it up with veggies and a great sauce, and eat to your heart’s content.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEED TO MAKE CREAMY LEMON PASTA?
First, I chose a few of my favorite vegetables which work perfectly with a lemon flavor.
- White Onion
- Green Peas
To begin, I saute the garlic, onions, and artichokes until the onions are translucent.
Then, I add vegetable broth and noodles. Although I chose bow-tie pasta, any pasta goes well with this recipe. Once the vegetable broth begins to boil, I cover the pot, and reduce the heat to simmer, and cook for 15 minutes.
In the meantime, I prepare the lemon cashew cream to add after the pasta and vegetables are cooked.
HOW TO MAKE LEMON CASHEW CREAM FOR LEMON PASTA RECIPE
- Lemon Juice + Zest
- Vegetable Broth
- Nutritional Yeast
- Dijon Mustard
Of course, all the ingredients go into my Nutribullet blender and the sauce is ready in seconds.
Because the kale, peas, and asparagus are delicate and don’t take long to cook, I add them the last five minutes of the cooking process. This way, the vegetables are not overcooked.
Once the 15 minutes are done, I remove the cover and stir in the cashew cream.
Next, I cook for 5 additional minutes to combine the ingredients one last time.
As a result, the sauce thickens, creating a creamy lemon pasta to die for. In order to add a little more lemon love to my creamy lemon pasta recipe, I add a slice of lemon to each bowl. Also, I include some Vegan Parmesan Cheese, and I made my family’s favorite Vegan Garlic Bread, but this time I added fresh rosemary, parsley, and basil.
