First of all, this original carrot penne pasta recipe was made by my father! I was really amazed because he usually doesn’t cook light, fresh recipes, as he’s more a “comfort food”  type of cook. This carrot penne pasta recipe is very different from his usual pasta recipes and that is why I liked it so much. You’ll absolutely love the taste and textures! It’s abundant with flavors and all of them blend so well together.

Parsnip is really amazing! We recently started using it more in recipes. I used to add it only in soups, but now I see what I’ve missed! This parsnip-mustard sauce is a keeper! You can use it as a dip or spread or even as a standalone pasta sauce.

I guarantee you’ll love my dad’s carrot penne pasta dish. I ate double servings!! It’s a super healthy, low fat, vegan recipe you’ll love, plus you can easily make it gluten-free too!

P.S. You should also try my Cheesy Spaghetti with Dill and Green Pepper Sauce recipe! It’s from my “not-yet-vegan” times but it’s still one of my favorites! Also, Julia made an awesome carrot pasta recipe on her blog. You should check it out! The ginger-lime peanut sauce sounds amazing!
