Plant Perks


Pasta, and Italian food in general, has been known to bring mass amounts of joy to tastebuds around the world– from punches of garlic to creamy cheesy sauces, flavor is never lacking. While many Italian dishes are already vegetarian friendly, they are not Vegan friendly.
This is where we come in! Our Vegan Italian Recipes transform staple dishes into amazingly satisfying dishes that sacrifice nothing– and no animals made sacrifices either. Win-Win!
