Gluten-Free Veggie Pasta
  • 6 cups water (to cook the pasta)
  • 1 8–ounce package gluten-free pasta(rotini, elbows, shells, spaghetti, or penne)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (for pasta water)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 6 ounces marinated artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 4 ounces vegan feta cheese or regular feta cheese, crumbled



  1. In a large stock pot, bring the water to a rolling boil. Carefully pour in the pasta and sea salt and cover the pot.
  2. Turn the heat to medium-low and simmer for 8-9 minutes, or according to the directions on the package.
  3. While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the onion, garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes, and artichoke hearts, and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the vegetables have softened. Turn off the heat and set the skillet aside while the pasta finishes cooking.
  4. When the pasta is done cooking, carefully drain it in a colander, reserving about ½ cup of the pasta water.
  5. Transfer the cooked pasta to a large serving bowl. Add the cooked vegetables and balsamic vinegar and toss with the pasta. Add a splash of the pasta water to help moisten the cooked pasta.
  6. Divide the pasta and vegetables between four serving bowls and top with feta cheese.
  7. Serve warm.
