This vegan pasta al limone is a creamy and comforting meal that is bursting with lemon flavor! It's made with simple ingredients like garlic, milk, and of course, lemon, making it an easy, delicious, and affordable pasta dish. I promise that your entire family will love this meal! It is easy enough for a quick weeknight dinner, but feels fancy enough for a date night.


  • 12 ounces pasta (I prefer spaghetti, linguine, or bucatini)
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon white miso
  • 1/2 cup milk (I like oat milk for this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup reserved pasta water
  • 3/4 cup vegan parmesan cheese
  • Garnish with parsley, red pepper flakes, and/or fresh cracked black pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta until just before it is al dente (we will cook the pasta even more in the sauce), and reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
  2. When the pasta is nearly done cooking, melt the butter and olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the garlic and salt, and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant.
  3. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, miso, milk, and 1/2 cup of pasta water to the pan. Bring the mixture to a low simmer and allow everything to infuse for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the cooked pasta and parmesan cheese to the pan and mix continuously for 1-2 minutes until everything is emulsified and the mixture thickens.
  5. Serve with parsley, red pepper flakes, and/or fresh cracked black pepper, and enjoy your cozy meal!
