35 Protein Packed Vegetarian Pasta Recipes!  Each delicious pasta recipe is also packed with tons of protein!

Pasta has always been one of my go-to weeknight dinners.  It’s easy to make, quick to get on the table and there are so many different ways you can mix it up.  However, I’ve recently realized that most of the vegetarian pasta recipes I’ve been cooking up all have something else in common: they lack a major protein source.  While I enjoy a simple pasta with red sauce or pesto sauce, these days I’ve been much more aware of my protein intake and am now trying to incorporate a good amount of it into every single meal I eat.

I’ve rounded up 35 Vegetarian Pasta Recipes that not only look delicious, but all have a good source of protein added to them. 

Enjoy!

    I’m with you – pasta is definitely a go-to during the week! Love this round-up! I usually end up just adding beans when the pasta doesn’t have any protein but there are just so many fun ideas here!

    Oooh what a great round up! I’m with you, I always have pasta in my pantry for a quick go-to meal. Lately I’ve been trying out different bean pastas to see how they stack up to regular pasta… They definitely don’t have the same yummy pasta taste, but some of them are not bad at all, and they really pack a protein punch! My favorite find so far is chickpea ramen noodles that I made a quick Asian soup with.

    I often make meatless pastas so I love this round up, Izzy! We definitely need our protein and I love the variety here! Thanks for including my pesto tortellini. :)
