Can't choose between pasta and pizza? Plant-based food blogger Danielle Brown of @healthygirlkitchen shared this simple, genius recipe for vegan pasta sticks that she said was inspired by this nonvegan version from @emilyscooking_.
- Kebab sticks or skewers
- Cooked pasta like rigatoni or penne
- Marinara sauce or pesto
- Vegan cheese (she used Trader Joe's cashew mozzarella)
Just slide the cooked pasta (we say go for whole wheat or a bean pasta), top with marinara or a vegan pesto (we love Trader Joe's!), and a sprinkle of vegan cheese. You could also add some chopped veggies, corn, beans, crumbled tofu or tempeh, fresh herbs, and sliced tomatoes — the possibilities are endless! We love this quick and exciting variation of pasta for dinner, and kids will especially love it.
