If you are looking for a pasta dish that is plant based, oil free, requires minimal ingredients and minimal time, the you have come to the right place!

This Santa Fe Penne Pasta was once of my favorite go-to recipes when I first went vegan. These are ingredients that I was already familiar with and the prep was fast and easy. My kind of meal!

This works great as an entree, a side dish, and can easily be taken with you when you are on the go.

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. Enjoy!
