Pasta Primavera is absolutely a classic for a reason: This recipe is truly one of the most convenient and simple pasta dishes you will ever make. Not to mention, it's extremely easy to make vegan without having to sacrifice any flavor or creaminess. Packed with hearty vegetables, this is a great go-to if you need to whip up a quick dinner in 30-minutes or need to use up some veggies in your fridge.

Pasta primavera is usually made with heavy cream and parmesan, which is what gives it a rich and creamy sauce. Thankfully, you can easily find the vegan counterparts to these ingredients at your grocery store. I find using oat cream works best if you can’t find an oat cream, feel free to use soy milk or any non-dairy milk of your choice to achieve this creaminess.
