Vegan Boursin Roasted Veg Pasta Sauce

When you have a fussy eater in the family, be that your child or your partner, sometimes you have to be sneaky to get extra veg into their diet.

In my case, it's my son, who leaves way too much veg on his plate when I add it to pasta.

So, I created this vegan Boursin roasted veg pasta sauce which is made with roasted vegetables that are blended into the most delicious smooth, creamy pasta sauce.

I managed to cram in 4 different vegetables, just using what I had in the fridge, but I could have added more.

Vegan Boursin

This creamy pasta is made with vegan Boursin cheese, but if you're veggie, you can use the standard Boursin garlic and herb cheese.

If you can't get hold of it (Asda usually sells it), you could use another vegan herb and garlic cheese (I like Tesco's own brand) or plain cream cheese and mix in garlic powder and some dried herbs to flavour it.

I've made this with Boursin and the Tesco herb and garlic cream cheese and both work well to add flavour and a wonderfully creamy finish to this easy pasta sauce.

This is the perfect vegan Boursin cheese recipe, but also try my vegan Boursin pasta with cherry tomatoes, which is also delicious.

Why this creamy dairy-free pasta is so good

Here are the reasons you need to make this vegan pasta dish.
  • Hidden veg - a great way of sneaking in extra veggies
  • Colourful - a colourful pasta
  • Creamy - creamy from the soft cheese
  • Tasty - a tasty sauce
  • Easy - it's super easy to make
  • Nutritious - lots of veg
  • Crowd-pleaser - everyone loves this roast veg pasta
  • Versatile - you can use this in other ways (see below)
  • Frugal - a good way of using up whatever vegetables you have
