Creamy Vegan Lemon Pasta

Enjoy this delicious and easy creamy lemon pasta. No nuts or blender required.

Who doesn’t love a good creamy pasta recipe? Especially when it’s vegan, nut free and does not require a blender.

That means a way easier clean up and faster cooking time.

Vegan cream cheese is underrated in terms of that you can use it in soo many vegan recipes to acquire a creamy and delicious texture. I used it for this recipe and I found that it worked out perfectly.

I really like Tofutti vegan cream cheese because it has a very neutral flavor and melts very well. However, you can use whatever vegan cream cheese you’d like.
