Homemade Vegan Pasta Recipe - Homemade Lasagna Sheets Recipe - How to Make Pasta without Pasta Machine



Making pasta was always on mind for quite a long time..Specially lasagna sheets. Because in my place it is not easy to get those. I got many request for that recipe, I know that if i have to post that recipe, it should be using homemade lasagna sheet recipe..I fixed the day today and started the work in the morning itself.


Every recipe for homemade pasta calls for eggs, since i decided to make a vegetarian lasagna, i thought of making a vegan pasta sheet as well. So i stumbled upon this recipe and adapted it slightly as per my taste and preference and the pasta sheet turned out to be a success. I made most of it into lasagna sheet and made a small batch of linguine, cooked it for few mins and tossed that fresh pasta in a homemade tomato sauce. My 2 year daughter just loved it.


First my plan was to make a veg lasagna, later i got few more sheets leftover. So i decided to make a spinach and mushroom lasagna..Luckily i had every ingredients on hand and it turned out just great..You have to cook the pasta sheets in boiling salted water for 2 to 3 mins before making lasagna..Hope you will give this recipe a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
