Holy meatless Monday! 

Ok, not really. It’s Tuesday. But you can totally eat pasta and meatless dishes any day of the week. 

Especially if you live in New York. 

New Yorkers really LOVE their pasta. 

I get it, pasta is delicious and easy and it’s even better when you packing it full of fresh vegetables and herbs. 

Just like this ratatouille pasta! 

This meatless ratatouille pasta recipe is packed full of vegetables and fresh herbs.

I know I’m making a ratatouille pasta but I have one small confession.

I rarely eat eggplant.

I think it’s because I really dislike fried eggplant and this is how it’s presented to me 90% of the time. It always tastes like loads of olive oil since it soaks into the eggplant flesh. I really don’t get why people love it so much. 

Or maybe I’ve just had bad fried eggplant?

Which is totally possible. I grew up in Ohio. We didn’t eat a lot of fried eggplant. 

Or really any eggplant. 

I mean, I’m sure there are people in Ohio eating eggplant but I assure you the Clabaugh family was not one them. 

This ratatouille pasta is full of fresh vegetables, herbs and chunky tomatoes. It’s the perfect meatless Monday meal!

What’s in ratatouille pasta?

Ummmmm the best stuff on earth! 

  • Eggplant
  • Zucchini 
  • Fennel 
  • Onion
  • Garlic 
  • Oregano 
  • Basil 
  • Pasta

I mean, the pasta part is pretty intuitive but it should be noted that ratatouille pasta does, in fact, contain pasta. 

I actually had a hard time picking which pasta shape to use but penne won. It’s just such a classic shape that works so well with chunky pasta sauces. 

I also think if you made this pasta in the summer it would be awesome filled with grilled vegetables. 

Grilled ratatouille pasta – yeah, that is happening! 

Oh, and did you know in 2014 I made a ratatouille pizza? SO GOOD!

This ratatouille pasta is the perfect Meatless Monday meal! Packed full of fresh vegetables and herbs.

I also LOVE all the fresh basil in this ratatouille pasta. 

It’s such a burst of flavor in the middle of winter.

Which here in New York is dreary and sorta depressing. (I know, shocker I’m bitching about the weather.) 

I’ve been growing basil on my cactus shelf and I’m always shocked to wake up and see it’s still living. Those little babies can thrive when they want too. 

I can keep houseplants alive but herbs, vegetables, and outside flowers usually test my patience. 

This ratatouille pasta is full of zucchini, eggplant, onions, fennel and tomatoes. So delicious and ready in no time!

I also think this ratatouille pasta recipe would be great with mushrooms or even chicken if you’re looking to pack in more protein. 

Get creative and make this pasta your own!
