Garlic Parsley Pasta Recipe Without Cheese

Garlic parsley pasta is full of flavor from the fresh herbs used and it is very easy to prepare too! I made this vegetarian pasta dish without using any cheese, and it was very delicious with the white garlic pasta sauce I used with it. However if you wish, you may add cheese too. This pasta recipe is a good way to use any fresh parsley leaves from your garden or if you have any leftover parsley with you.

  • Cook the pasta according to the instructions in the packet, drain and keep aside. You may drizzle little oil and stir once so that the pasta shells won't stick to each other.
  • Chop the onions, crush the garlic and ginger.
  • In a heated pan, add oil and fry the garlic and ginger, add the chopped onions and fry till tender.
  • Meanwhile chop up the parsley leaves finely and keep aside.
  • Once the onions and cooked, add the parsley leaves, add the butter and salt and fry for another 2 minutes. You can also cover the pan and cook the parsley onion mixture for another 2 more minutes if you don't want a strong flavor of parsley.
  • Once the onion parsley leaves mixture is sauteed well, add the cooked pasta and mix well.
  • Pour the sauce to the pasta and mix the pasta gently so each pasta shell is coated with the white sauce.
  • Serve and enjoy the delicious and simple parsley pasta with white sauce!


You can add grated cheese on top of the prepared pasta if you wish, though I didn't use any cheese in this pasta dish as it was already very delicious without the addition of cheese.
The white garlic sauce I used for this pasta makes this pasta very creamy and more delicious. To prepare enough sauce for this dish, you will need to increase the ingredients in the pasta sauce recipe accordingly.
