Not all pasta is made using eggs. Could you use one of the vegan-friendly egg replacers? Alternatively, use a recipe for "ordinary" pasta but for a balanced meal you'd need some sort of protein, perhaps in the sauce or with a parmesan substitute on top.

Wow, this is one old thread. Predates me on this board. Never used eggs making pasta. Water, flour, salt, fat of a sort.

Don't think Zoey is going to get the message, being a one post wonder from 2003.

You probably won't get an answer from Zoey since he/she hasn't been here since the original post in 2003.

You have to make sure all excess liquid is out of any vege you add, as well as pureeing or chopping it extremely finely. I use egg(s) so can't really comment on stability without them, but aren't there vegan egg substitutes?

As an alternative, you can get a spiralizer and spiralize sweet potatoes, large zucchini, large carrots, large yellow squash, regular potatoes in spaghetti-like strands or noddle-like strands and use them instead. Vegetarian and vegan recipes for these types of "spaghetti" are numerous.

Oh, the vege sphaghetti/noodles hold together better if you bake them in the oven with S and P and a bit of oil olive. The noodles you can gently boil or even serve raw if you are using carrot, zucchini, or yellow squash.

We have an attachment for our Kitchen Aid that spiralizes veges, but there are hand-cranked ones as well, just be sure you get a decent one that gets good reviews, otherwise it's an exercise in frustration from what I understand.
