Rose Farfalle is one of the Italian classics that is hard to give up even when you are omitting dairy. Therefore, this alternative is the perfect and satisfying option.

They are so many dishes in Italian cuisine that are easy to veganize and Rose Farfalle is a perfect example. This is actulay my second recipe I have created and you may check the older one if you like, here ROSE FARFALLE. It is little bit different and who knows, you ma even like it better. In my opinion they are both delicious and you can substitute the Farfalle pasta with any other kind of your choice.

Although I highly recommend whole grain spelt pasta or gluten free pasta because of the nutritional value in these is much higher than in regular pasta. White pasta is nothing but empty calories and it is not good for your health at all. If you are not familiar with Whole Grain Spelt you may read this article to learn about its helath benefits.

Regarding gluten free pasta, they are not all the same and not all nutritious, so be careful what brand you are choosing. For example GoGo Quinoa is one of the better brands that you may look in to, also available on Amazon. Eventough they do not offer Farfalle, they do have great selection of other pasta you can choose from.

In addition, I am including one more HEALTH ARTICLE about PASTA to give you a better insight and why it is important to choose only the highly nutritious pasta instead of one full of empty calories. The bottom line is that any whole grain pasta is healthy, even whole wheat, which is available everywhere.

I hope you find this recipe appealing and you will try it. However, if you have any questions or suggestions, please contact me anytime. Video for this recipe is attached as well, so I hope you take a look and if you subscribe to may YouTube channel I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you for visiting and have a marvelous week!

  • In a large pot, cook your pasta by following instructions on the package.
  • Best way to serve is to pour the sauce on top of pasta and top with sundried tomatoes and basil as shown in my video.



Although I am using whole grain spelt Farfalle pasta, you can use pasta of your choice. For example if you prefer gluten free GoGo Quinoa Pasta Rice & Quinoa Fusilli could be a good choice. 
Also, the sauce is best served on top of the pasta and not mixed in. I did that only for the photoshoot. Both, sauce and pasta can be stored in a refrigerator up to 3 days as long as properly sealed in sperate containers. Even of you mix them they will be okay, but it will be sticky.
