I made this with red lentil pasta noodles for extra protein but this dish works with any pasta noodle. I also made this on the weekend with homemade vegan noodles and WOW what a decadent, creamy vegan meal!

How long does my Vegan Creamy One Pot Pasta last?

Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to four days. If your pasta needs to be cooked for 10 minutes at about the 8-minute mark you can add in the rose sauce. Be careful not to overcook the noodles. Make sure to stir occasionally while the pasta is cooking or the noodles will stick to the bottom of the pan.

Don’t leave this dish for too long as this dish need’s a bit of love while it’s cooking. I used 4 cups of pasta because I wanted a creamy more saucy result. If you use more pasta and the dish is getting dry while cooking you can add a little more broth as needed.
