???? Let me know in the comments if you enjoyed my easy vegan pasta recipe.

▶️ RECIPE INGREDIENTS:

???? To Cook Pasta:
250g / 2+1/2 cups approx. Penne Pasta (OR ANY TYPE OF PASTA OF YOUR CHOICE)
8 Cups Water
2 Teaspoon Salt (I have added pink Himalayan salt)

???? Other Ingredients:
3 Tablespoon Olive Oil
130g / 1+1/4 cup approx. Onion – Thinly Sliced
1 Tablespoon Garlic – finely chopped (3 to 4 garlic cloves approximately)
1/4 to 1/2 Teaspoon Chili Flakes or to taste
2+1/2 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
(If you like your pasta more zesty, you can always increase the quantity of the tomato paste)

350g / 3 Cups approx. Zucchini – Cut in 1/2 inch semi circle pieces
3/4 Cup Pasta Cooking Water OR AS REQUIRED
200g / 1+1/4 Cup approx. Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
Salt to taste (I have added total 1/4 +1/2 Teaspoon of pink himalayan salt)

Drizzle of Olive Oil (I have added 1 tablespoon of organic cold pressed Olive Oil)
1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper or to taste
12g / 1/2 Cup Fresh Basil or to taste

▶️ METHOD:

Start by chopping the vegetables and set aside. Generously salt a pot of boiling water and add the penne pasta. Cook the pasta until it’s Al dente (as per the package instructions).

✅ ???? DO NOT OVER COOK THE PASTA, cook it al dente because we will be further cooking it in the tomato sauce later, so just cook it al dente.

To a heated pan, add olive oil, onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook the onion on medium to medium-high heat (depending on the heat of your stove) until it’s soft and translucent. It will take about 2 to 3 minutes. Do not brown the onions.

Now reduce the heat to low and add garlic and chili flakes. Cook on low to medium-low heat for about 1 minute or until fragrant. Then add the tomato paste and mix well. Now add the zucchini. Turn the heat to medium-high and fry the zucchini along with the tomato paste for about 2 minutes, to cook out the raw flavour of the tomato paste.

✅ ???? NOTE: If you like your pasta more zesty, you can always increase the quantity of the tomato paste

Then add the pasta cooking water to the pan to make a sauce, mix well and bring it to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, add the Cherry/grape tomatoes. Cook the tomatoes on medium-high heat for about 2 minutes or until the tomatoes start to disintegrate. Now add the cooked pasta and mix well. Add salt to taste and mix again (I have added 1/2 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt).

✅ ???? PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PASTA COOKING WATER ALREADY HAS SALT IN IT, so add the salt accordingly.

Mix well and cook on medium heat for another 2 minutes or so. By now the tomatoes and the pasta water together would have created a nice silky sauce. If the pasta starts to get dry add some more cooking pasta water. Turn off the stove.

Garnish with freshly ground black pepper, drizzle of a good quality Extra virgin Olive Oil and fresh basil. Mix well and serve hot.

▶️ IMPORTANT NOTES:

???? YOU CAN USE ANY TYPE OF PASTA OF YOUR CHOICE

???? DO NOT over cook the pasta. Cook the pasta Al dente because we will be further cooking it in the tomato sauce later

???? Reserve at least 1+1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water for the sauce before draining the pasta

???? Every stove is different so regulate the heat as required. If at any point you notice the pan is getting over heated, reduce the heat

???? Fry the onions until soft and translucent. Do not have to brown the onions

???? Sometimes a batch of cherry/grape tomatoes can be a bit sour, so in that case add 1/4 teaspoon of sugar to balance out the acidity / sourness

???? PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PASTA COOKING WATER ALREADY HAS SALT IN IT, so add the salt to the dish accordingly

???? If the pasta sauce starts to get dry, add some more of the reserved pasta cooking water, do not add cold water to it

???? If you like your pasta more zesty, you can always increase the quantity of the tomato paste

Enjoy!
