Lent is quickly coming to a close. One more week of needing something meatless on Fridays for the family! Although, if I am going to be truthful, I love to have a meatless meal each week all throughout the year. It just isn’t always on Friday! Today, I thought I’d share a fantastic list of pasta dishes for meatless meals that can be your meal whether it is Lent or not.
First, I have a fabulous and easy pasta dish which we love both on Fridays in Lent and during the year for a quick lunch: Tuna and Spaghetti.
I have a few others that I remember my Nana making over the years. I just haven’t had time to make and photograph them yet.
Here are 24 other pasta dishes that will tantalize your taste buds and provide an option for meatless meals.
