This vegan lemon pasta is light and easy to make. The flavors are simple, but go together so well. The lemon gives the pasta a nice bit of acidity to cut through the vegan parmesan's decadent flavor. There are a lot of different ways to make vegan parmesan (usually nooch + ground up nuts). It’s really simple and tastes amazing. This vegan lemon pasta is great for a quick dinner or even a date night AND you could even make extra to eat the next day.
