Becoming vegan could be one of the best decisions you’ve made in your life, but it also involves giving up a lot of things you enjoy as those don’t align with your values.
Fortunately, most pasta is vegan, so you don’t have to cut them out of your diet. Just keep an eye out for fresh pasta, as that often contains eggs. Otherwise, the packaged pasta you find in supermarkets is mostly made of wheat flour and some plant-based ingredients.
From regular packaged pasta to healthy options made with other plant-based ingredients and strengthened with vitamins, this list has 14 types that are both delicious and vegan.
