Surf’s up Pasta – vegan & easy

A twist on your usual (vegan) pasta - creamy and full of flavor :)

My boyfriend and I like to meet up at lunchtime some days to spend time together. Usually, we’ll eat at a coffee shop called Campus Suite. There’s a lot of food, both hot meals and snacks, and of course coffee and other drinks. They have a few vegan food options, but since my boyfriends vegetarian and not vegan, he always goes for the Surfcup Pasta. A really nice and creamy pasta, but unfortunately not vegan. Since I’m always a little bit jealous, I decided to try making this kind of pasta my own. The following recipe is just as creamy and super-yummy and I named it Surf’s up Pasta.

I haven’t seen a similar recipe and I’m all for the combination of the different flavors. We cook it regularly because it’s really easy and quick to make. To make it a little bit healthier, you could use full grain pasta. To make it gluten-free, you could always use gluten-free pasta.

I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe as much as my boyfriend and I do 🙂 Have a great day
