Meatless Mondays: 33 Pasta and Noodle Recipes

Meatless Mondays: 33 Pasta and Noodle Recipes by @SpicieFoodie and Friends

My number one choice for meatless meals is pasta. It is a great choice not only for vegetarian meals, but also because dinner can be on the table in about 30 minutes — unless you mix it with an elaborate sauce. Another really great thing about pasta is that it is sure to satisfy even the pickiest eaters.

For this edition of Meatless Mondays I’ve put together some of my vegetarian recipes as well as 21 more from foodie friends and bloggers. Enjoy!

G’day! What a beautiful meatless collection Nancy, true!
It is only brekkie here, but would love to sample a little of each and now have a pasta craving too!
Cheers! Joanne


14 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 12:57 AM

Hope you satisfied the craving Joanne:)


15 Eha August 13, 2013 at 5:05 AM

A wonderful collection of recipes so easy to find all in one! And one can see that pasta dishes certainly do not need to be Italian to be appetizing: the Asian versions oft are so interesting to eat and prepare :) !


16 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 12:57 AM

Agreed, Eha. Thanks so much:)


17 Amelia August 13, 2013 at 5:44 AM

Hi Nancy, all the pasta meal look delightful. Thanks for sharing the wonderful recipes. :)

Have a nice week ahead.


18 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 12:58 AM

My pleasure, thanks Amelia!


19 Phong Hong August 13, 2013 at 11:18 AM

Nancy, meatless dishes can be very delicious too! I love this impressive collection :)


20 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 12:58 AM

They really can, thanks Phong!:)


21 easyfoodsmith August 13, 2013 at 1:19 PM

I believe no one will miss meat when such delicious pasta options are there to choose from!


22 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 12:58 AM

So very true, thanks!


23 Frank @Memorie di Angelina August 13, 2013 at 3:41 PM

Thanks for the shout-out, Nancy! A great collection of recipes you’ve got here and your photography never ceases to amaze me.


24 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 12:59 AM

My pleasure Frank, I love your blog. Thank you:)


25 Vicki Bensinger August 13, 2013 at 3:52 PM

OMG these all sound and look fantastic. Your Miso soup I don’t recall seeing but that looks so tasty I will have to try that and the Gouda Mac n Cheese sounds quite comforting. Great post and as always beautiful photos.


26 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 12:59 AM

Thanks Vicki, I hope you make them both.:)


27 Rochelle August 14, 2013 at 12:14 AM

These all look so yummy! I love pasta so if I can come up with new ways to make it, it can keep being interesting and get boring.

My go to is usually spaghetti, but I think the idea of giving it a kick with some spice and zucchini sounds great!


28 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 1:09 AM

I love the sound of your usual pasta. Pasta is so great because it can take on so many looks. Thanks Rochelle!


29 Sandra August 14, 2013 at 1:28 AM

Diving into either one of these dishes, meat would be the furthest thing from my mind.


30 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 1:38 AM

Thanks Sandra!


31 Gina August 14, 2013 at 1:50 AM

I was just telling a friend today that pasta is a great vehicle for any add-ins, not just marinara sauce. I don’t know how I missed some of those tasty pasta dishes, glad to have them in one post. Thank you for including me that was sweet. Was it a day early birthday surprise? He he.


32 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 5:27 PM

Hey there Birthday girl!! I love your recipe so I had to include it.:)


33 Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies August 14, 2013 at 2:32 AM

What a fabulous collection of recipes! I definitely know this will come in handy–I am all about easy pasta meals. :)


34 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 5:28 PM

Thank you Kiersten, I’ve seen how yummy your pasta dishes are.


35 mjskit August 14, 2013 at 6:24 AM

Another great collection of recipes! I love meatless Monday, although sometimes it becomes meatless Tuesday, but never the less, we do try to eat meals without meat at least 3 times a week and sometimes more. So this is a wonderful resource for ideas. Thanks for including my tortellini dish!


36 GourmetGetaways August 14, 2013 at 9:58 AM

What a great collection of delicious dishes!!
I would love to have a fork to go around each bowl sampling them all :)


37 Spicie Foodie August 14, 2013 at 5:29 PM

I know me too, wouldn’t that be nice?:)


38 Ramona August 17, 2013 at 12:30 PM

I would love to try each one of these… my daughter would love these too. Now my two carnivores in the house (the males)… I would need to make some chicken on the side… they are so difficult. :)


39 Spicie Foodie August 18, 2013 at 3:30 PM

Thank you Ramona!:)


40 Jean (Lemons & Anchovies) August 17, 2013 at 5:02 PM

I love your collection of meatless pasta dishes. Pasta is also my go-to because it’s so easy. Thanks for including one of my recipes–catching up on your posts this morning. I’ve been bad at visiting my friends this summer. Hope you’ve been enjoying yours. :)


41 Spicie Foodie August 18, 2013 at 3:33 PM

Thanks Jean! I love all of the pasta recipes you have shared on your blog. I am and hope you are too.
