Pasta has always been one of my all time favorite dishes, but it wasn't until I traveled to Italy that I truly fell in love with pasta and the art of making it. Last December, I took a 2 week course in Italy that focused on the Mediterranean Diet and Lifestyle. Let me tell you they eat GOOD there. It's like bread and pasta heaven. During the 2 week stay, we got to partake in the preparation of several meals, each of which contained a pasta dish. Surprisingly, most of them ended up being vegan pasta dishes. We learned all about pasta, including its origin and the different ways to make and cook it. In Southern Italy, there is really no such thing as boxed pasta. It was all freshly made and eaten within a few hours. There is something so unique about fresh pasta that you could never get from a boxed kind.

After that trip, my love for pasta has never been the same. However, I have also never tasted a pasta similar to what I had in Italy until I made it myself. Most pasta dishes, in Italy and other parts of the world, contain eggs. However, I wanted to make a pasta that didn't use any animal products.

After doing a little research I came up with this super simple homemade vegan pasta. If you're a pasta lover like me, then you have to try making your own pasta at least once. You can even do it without a pasta maker! I promise you won't regret it.

Now for a few notes about the recipe! If you don't have a pasta roller and decided to roll the pasta out by hand or with a rolling pin click here for a few tips!

If you are looking for a few ideas on different types of pasta to make, click here to watch a fun and informative video! This video is also really interesting, but a little more advanced. I don't know about you, but I think watching people make pasta is super mesmerizing and relaxing. If you want to make the types of pasta with little ridges and texture, a fork works wonders if you don't have the actual equipment needed! Personally, I think fettuccine is the easiest and most versatile pasta to make, but the options are endless!

Finally, you can't have pasta without some kind of sauce. I'm a big fan of a simple garlic and olive oil sauce, a little pesto, or marinara sauce but its totally your choice! If you're wanting to be a little more adventurous, you can try an avocado pasta sauce, a creamy roasted red pepper sauce, or a vegan alfredo sauce!

I know making fresh pasta is a little ambitious, but I promise it is worth it. It's even more fun if you can do it with a group of people. There's something really special about partaking in the preparation of a delicious meal and eating it together at the end. Best of luck in your pasta making adventures!
