While I like vegetables, I love pasta and bread even more! I’ve found incorporating vegetables into a pasta bowl to be a great way to get more vegetables in my daily diet. I also like veggie pasta, which is pasta that has vegetables ground into the pasta noodles. Not quite as healthy as eating the fresh vegetable on its own, but it makes it easier to include more veggies in each serving!

 It is important to keep in mind that the ingredients in the sauce or flavoring of the vegetable pasta bowls can affect how healthy the dish is!

Here’s a collection of vegetable pasta bowl recipes that I’ve found, most of them focus on healthy vegetable pasta bowls.
