Pasta is the ultimate comfort food! Before I was vegan, it was my go-to dish at almost every restaurant. It’s amazing to me how different every pasta dish is just by using different ingredients.
When I first went vegan I avoided ordering pasta due to creamy dairy-based sauces and the assumption that pasta was only good topped with cheese! Boy, was I wrong! Plus there was the issue with true Italian restaurants making fresh egg pasta! (Vegans don’t consume eggs if you didn’t know!)
However, once I realized most restaurants have a gluten-free pasta option that’s usually rice or corn based, my life changed! While I’m not gluten-free, it was a vegan pasta I could eat at Italian restaurants again. After a few weeks of being vegan you lose all cravings for dairy, and I promise you you will have an incredibly delicious (and nutritious) vegan meal at any Italian restaurant when you follow my tips in this video!
