Vegan Baked Spanakopita Pasta, it’s a whole vibe and the recipe you need to make this week! dinner can be made within a matter of 22 minutes total. you just need a few ingredients and your favorite pasta to make this deliciousness.
Vegan Baked Spanakopita Pasta is a greek-food inspired dream! we’ve been making the baked feta pasta for awhile, and a spanakopita twist is so fun!
this is really similar to a dip that i have made in the past. the dip is made in a pan on a stove but i will save that recipe for another day.
this recipe is made the same way as the baked feta pasta trend.
you simply add your spinach and a few other ingredients instead of tomatoes, and then bake in the oven for 22 minutes.
after the feta is melted and spinach is completely wilted, the mixture will look a little watery and that’s because of the vegetable stock.
this is exactly how it should look though! then, you add pasta, which you cook separately, along with some vegan cream cheese.
this will mesh together into the yummiest, creamiest and dreamiest sauce ever.
to make Vegan Baked Spanakopita Pasta, you of course need vegan feta.
while i love violife, i know that Trader Joe’s has a really similar vegan feta cheese. the vegan feta is 8 ounces and i highly recommend violife, it tastes the most authentic. if there’s another brand you want to use, go for it!
as far as the cream cheese goes, i went with kite hill.
choose your favorite pasta, it doesn’t matter what kind because you will be cooking it separately, so the pasta never bakes in the recipe.
fresh dill and fresh lemon are key flavors in the recipe along with garlic powder and onion powder.
oh and then, there’s the spinach! i have not tried frozen spinach, it might add too much water, so i recommend fresh!
you’re welcome to use fresh garlic and fresh onions, but i find the seasonings to be more convenient in this recipe.
Here’s everything you need to make Vegan Baked Spanakopita Pasta
vegan feta cheese
pasta of your choosing
sea salt and pepper to taste
vegan cream cheese
