You can find the ingredients with quantities and the recipe to print out on the recipe card below.
- Sea Salt
- fresh sage leaves
- fresh lemon juice + Zest
- Garlic Cloves
- Vegetable Broth
- Black Pepper
- Vegan Parmesan Cheese
To start, cook your favorite pasta in a large pot of salted water as directed on the package instructions. When they are al dente, drain them.
In the meantime, take 3 sprigs of sage and pluck the leaves.
Now grate a lemon. We need the zest.
Peel the garlic cloves and cut them into thin slices or mince it.
Take a non-stick pan and heat a tablespoon of vegetable stock on medium heat. Add the sage leaves, lemon zest and garlic and let brown lightly. Add a sip of vegetable broth now and then. When the garlic is brown, add the aqufaba and lemon juice. Let it sit for a bit to infuse the sage flavor. If you want, you can now add the Parmesan.
Now toss the spaghetti in the pan until they are completely coated with the sauce.
Season with freshly ground black pepper.
Sprinkle some vegan Parmesan and freshly ground pepper and some sea salt on top.
- Spaghetti: I love this recipe with spaghetti, you can use whole wheat pasta, gluten-free pasta, zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash or vegan gnocchi. I love to roast them first before tossing them in this sage sauce.
- Aquafaba: I always try to omit oil or vegan butter for a healthier version. You can use more veggie broth if you do not want to use Aquafaba.
- Parmesan: Instead of vegan Parmesan, you can also use nutritional yeast.
- Sage: Instead of fresh sage, you can also use dried sage. Here I recommend you to use about 1 teaspoon of sage.
- Sage cream Sauce: You love creamy pasta with earthy flavor sage? Add some coconut milk or cashew cream. You can also make hemp seeds or sunflower seeds cream.
- Spicy: You can make this pasta with some red pepper flakes spicy.
- Crispy Sage: Sprinkle some dried crispy sage over your spaghetti.
- Gnocchi: Bored by pasta? Use this sauce with some small gnocchi.
Here I would like to show you what you can serve with the vegan sage butter spaghetti.
- How to refrigerate it? If you have leftover noodles, then you can store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container for about 5 days. To warm up, put the pasta on a low heat. You can also warm them up in the microwave. If the pasta is a little too dry, add a little more cream or vegetable stock.
- How to freeze it? You can freeze the sage noodles in freezer safe containers in portions and keep them there for about 2 months. Let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator and warm them up as described above.
Awesome meal for busy weeknight dinners. I love easy meals for my meal planning, and this is one of my go-to recipes.
Swing the pasta in the sauce just before serving, otherwise it will dry out quickly.
