The 13 Best Jarred Vegan Pasta Sauces

There is no denying that pasta is a vegan diet staple. While we’ve all got a jar of marinara in the kitchen cupboard, it’s time to upgrade pasta night and give it the glow-up it deserves. Don’t get us wrong, there is a time and a place for linguine with red sauce, but we are all about creamy vegan alfredos, herbaceous pestos, and meatless meat sauces atop our noodles. Check out these 13 must-try sauces for your next pasta adventure!
