Vegan Pasta Recipe That Is So Easy To Make Yet Super Tasty!

Plant-based lemon pepper pappardelle pasta in olive oil, spices, lemon & red pepper flakes with basil! This is a vegan pasta recipe that will blow your mind because it is so incredibly flavorful and so simple to prepare.  Guest chef Joe Hehl, creator of the vegan recipe blog: “Dragged Through The Garden,” joins us on this episode of #LunchBreakLIVE, showing us exactly how to throw this pasta dish together.  let’s take a look…




Joe cooks, cleans, and voices the mildly cynical, albeit conversational vegan recipe blog called Dragged Through The Garden. With a focus on veganizing nostalgic/latchkey fare, discontinued fast-food menu items, and regionally niche American cuisine, Joe’s mission in DTTG is providing approachable, step-by-step recipes free of lengthy intros and long-winded paragraphs. Joe also can’t afford a nice camera. Based in Chicago, Illinois with no formal culinary training whatsoever, the idea of “why isn’t there a vegan version of this uber-romanticized latchkey dish on the internet” subsequently blossomed into Dragged Through The Garden, a phrase in reference to the vegetable-dense makeup of the Chicago-style hot dog. But, also somewhat redefined as making familiar dishes vegan by dragging them through the gardenDTTG is unpretentiously geared toward an audience of those who wish to experiment with plant-based cuisine and recreate nostalgic fare sans meat or dairy. Joe also offers menu consultation and recipe development for restaurants and breweries looking to expand into the world of vegan options. He also dabbles in freelance writing.
