Raise your hand if you are all about the easy meals these days (and most days).
I am raising both of my hands, my feet, everything because this mama is all about shortcuts. Feeding my boys is one of my favorite parts of being a mama. It is a blessing I get to cook and make food for a living. Then I get to see Ezra either love it or hate it (he is the most passionate little bubba!).
Easy pasta meals are a go-to in our house. I love that they make a few servings and it is usually something everyone can enjoy. You guys loved the The Easiest No-Boil Baked Pasta Recipe (gluten-free) so much as did we that I wanted to make another easy noodle dish for us.
This is the easiest vegan Enchilada pasta you can find.
This recipe is made with only 4 ingredients and I luckily had them all on hand during this quarantine. I know a lot of us don’t feel safe doing frequent visits to the store so hopefully you guys can snag these ingredients either online or in your kitchen.
What ingredients we you’ll need:
- Pasta of choice (gluten-free, bean-based, anything you want!)
- Organic canned black beans (or whatever beans you have)
- Enchilada sauce
- Non-dairy cheese (or regular cheddar cheese works too)
- Any toppings: avocado, tomato, sour cream (we used unsweetened coconut yogurt), slice tomatoes, crushed tortilla chips
For some more healthy meal ideas that are easy and delicious, I rounded up a bunch in this blog post.

- Serve in bowl of choice when your favorite mix-in’s
*Leftovers will stay good for 5 days in the fridge
Can you please clarify whether the can of black beans should be drained before adding the beans to the pasta? Thanks.
It looks very delicious and healthy. Before this, I can’t imagine topping of avocado on pasta. Nice idea! and you presented it very well. I must do a pat on your back.
Do you have a favorite brand of dairy free cheddar cheese, specifically one that goes well with this recipe? Looks delicious and can’t wait to make it!
i don’t! tbh i usually prefer grass-fed cheddar but we had a df one here!
Love this recipe! I made it with Banza pasta and it was amazing!!
happy to hear!! xx
