Easy curry pasta is a simple to make quick healthy meal. This delicious recipe is perfect for busy family weeknights and will soon have everyone satisfied and full!
Well folks I feel that this easy curry pasta recipe is just what we all need at the moment.
I mean one minute we seem to be through the worst and then the next it feels like we're right back at the start doesn't it?
OK, enough said. You know the current situation I'm talking about. It is what it is and we just need to deal with it.
So I think some comforting, but still relatively healthy curried pasta will hit the spot perfectly!
Now this easy curry pasta isn't something you'll find in an Indian restaurant or anywhere abroad like that either.
No, it's rather a throwback to my student days.
However, back in those student days I would have been more likely to make this with packets of cheap and nasty curry sauce.
So today I'm making this curried pasta recipe right from scratch. Making it a perfect delicious homemade healthier meal to feed the family!
The sauce that goes with this curry pasta is just so creamy tasting. Yet it isn't made with any cream.
You can easy alter the amount of curry powder in this recipe to suit your taste in terms of how hot and spicy you want it.
In order to make this recipe one that's suitable for kids I just put in the minimal required amount of powder to give it a gentle and mild heat.
Talking of kids, there's even some veggies in this easy curry pasta to make sure they get some vital vitamins and minerals.
Questions About How To Make This Easy Curry Pasta
- Is this curry pasta vegan? Whilst this curry pasta is vegetarian, in order to make it vegan you will need to use a suitable vegan pasta.
- Can I use any kind of pasta for this recipe? I use penne pasta but most kinds like fusilli or farfalle would be perfect too.
- To make this gluten free then use a suitable gluten free pasta.
- Can I add / substitute other vegetables? Absolutely. You could use frozen sweetcorn instead of other leftover vegetables chopped up small like broccoli.

This sounds delicious, Neil! Well done taking an old favorite and updating it to a 'from-scratch' version. I'm certain that it tastes better than the one made from the premade curry. A good pasta dish is hard to beat, and this one looks like it's packed with yummy flavors!
Simple and delicious David. That's all I was trying to recreate here based on the easy dishes from my student days. I'm happy it turned out as it did.
Lovely. And such a great idea. I love curry flavors so much I think I could eat curried shoe soles! But I’ll make this instead! I might add a little cream...
Ha ha me too Mimi. Whenever there's a curry option or the ability to add some sort of curry flavour I usually do it. 🙂
How can I not love a curry pasta! 😀
Exactly! Simple to make and delicious too! 😀

I've never had a curried pasta, I don' t think, Neil. Sounds delicious. I'm glad you have such good recipies to ressurect from your college days. For me, I'm afraid that woiuld mean bologna sandwiches, hot dogs ... and the there was "the year of the potato."
I may not have had bologna sandwiches Jeff but I definitely had a fair share of hot dogs in my college days too. 😆
I agree with David, I also love recipes like this which are inspired by old favourites and remade into something healthier If I was to think about what I ate as a student, there would be a lot of fish fingers, mashed potatoes and fried cheese (for some reason) haha... so this actually sounds really good to me, Neil! My kids are still a little suspicious of spices but I agree a little bit of mild heat should be perfect for them. Thanks so much for sharing!
Glad you like it Katerina! I think we all had our fair share of "student" meals in our time. It's fun to enjoy them again. Just a little bit healthier nowadays though. 🙂
hi neil can you freeze this curry pasta please.
Hi Roseleen. Yes you can freeze this curry pasta. I have answered that in the questions section already. Thanks. Hope you enjoy!
