How To Make Pink Vegan Ravioli

Pink Vegan Ravioli. Beet infused pasta with a vegan tofu spinach filling. A savory dinner for the whole family!

You’d be hard pressed to find a vegan ravioli and the grocery store. But who can resist the warm homey goodness of pasta with pockets bursting with flavor and a slick sauce? This pink vegan ravioli is not too hard to make. The hardest part is rolling out the dough. If you have a pasta roller then great! If you don’t, skip arm day at the gym, you’ll need your strength here.

As an Italian (and just a human in general) cheese is one of the hardest things I had to give up. If you didn’t grow up vegan or dairy free you know exactly the pain of no longer consuming the ooey gooey, stretchy, salty, goodness that is cheese. I’ve watched countless times as the rest of my family sits and eats their store-bought raviolis and cheese just dripping from their mouths. I was left out. No more! I can make my own vegan ravioli and it’s a cute shade of pastel pink!

I also highly recommend my vegan French bread. It’s soft and fluffy and perfect for sopping up any leftover pasta sauce. Easy French Bread –

  • Use a cookie cutter to cut out your desired shape.
  • Place a small amount into the center of 1/2 the dough cut outs. top with the other half and press the edges of both sides down all the way around it with a fork to seal it.
  • Repeat this process with the other half of the dough until there is none left.
  • In a pot of salted water boil the raviolis in small batches for 4-6 minutes depending on thickness and al dente preference.
  • Place directly into the sauce of your choice and enjoy. Refrigerate up to 3 days, freeze up to 3 months.
