pasta recipes to try
Ah, pasta! We've all had the 'if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life' conversation and for me that food would have to be pasta. Naturally, I have a Pinterest board full of recipe ideas for my favourite food and these are a few that are top of my to try list!

Easiest Tomato Basil Penne With Spicy Italian Chickpeas (via half Baked Harvest)
This one drew me in with how delicious the dish looks in the photos! The ingredients are simple but the results look pretty amazing, plus I've never tried adding crisp chickpeas to a pasta dish before and I think it could be a game-changer.

Spicy Roasted Cauliflower Lemon Pasta (via The Full Helping)
Whilst I really like cauliflower I'm terrible at finding new ways to use it and this recipe seems like the perfect way to change that!

Vegan Spaghetti Carbonara (via Tasty)
I've tried out my own veganized version of carbonara before, replacing the meat with sunflower seed 'bacon' bits but I love the idea of using shiitake mushrooms instead.

Lentil Pasta With Vegan Garlic Butter Sauce (via Neurotic Mommy)
Whilst brown rice pasta is my number one I'm also a big fan of red lentil pasta which is the base for this vegan dish. The garlic butter sauce sounds quick and simple to whip up and with so few ingredients this would be a great one to bookmark for when the cupboards are looking bare!

Carrot Pesto Pasta (via A Beautiful Mess)
I love classic basil and tomato pestos but this recipe includes a carrot-based version which is a completely new idea to me!
