This creamy celery pasta recipe is a tasty flavorful sauce made with sauteed celery, vegetables, spices, and coconut milk tossed with long linguine noodles. A easy weeknight pasta recipe that is ready in about 30 minutes, and is a great way to use up extra celery.

I love tossing long strands of pasta in this creamy celery sauce, but you can use a short or medium pasta  you have on hand. Serve with a giant spinach avocado salad & whole wheat garlic knots for a complete tasty meal.

I always stock up on celery when it’s on sale. And when I have extra celery, I love whipping up this thick, creamy plant-based sauce to toss with pasta. It’s a tasty dinner with loads of flavor, and is simple to make.

I love the earthy flavor of celery, and when it’s cooked and blended in this sauce, it’s very reminiscent of a cream of celery soup – but better and with much more flavor. This recipe is a great way to use up any extra celery you have on hand – including the leaves!

What’s in This Pasta with Celery?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  •  Linguine pasta, or long pasta of choice
  • Celery – I used the stalks as well as the leaves!
  • Good Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Onion 
  • Garlic
  • Nutritional Yeast: not to be confused with bread baking yeast, nutritional yeast has a cheesy nutty umami flavor which is great in all kinds of dishes – I even sprinkle it on fresh popped pop corn and WOW!  Also great in soups and sauces of all kinds.
  • Lemon Juice
  • Salt
  • Coconut Milk: I use unsweetened full-fat coconut milk, which I’d definitely recommend over lite coconut milk. The flavor makes this dish super rich and creamy without any dairy.
  • Pepper
  • Parmesan cheese, a vegan version, adding a little extra into the sauce (and for garnish) makes this dish delish.

How Do You Make Celery Sauce for Pasta?

  1. In a large pot, cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. In the same pot, add the olive oil, onions, garlic, and celery, and sauté over medium heat for 7 to 8 minutes until the vegetables have started to soften and the celery has begun to brown. Remove 2 tablespoons of celery from the pot, to save for garnish.
  3. Add the nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add coconut milk, and simmer for 20 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  4. Using an immersion blender (or by transferring small batches to a stand blender) blend the sauce until creamy.
  5. Add the cooked pasta back to the pot, and cook until hot. Serve the hot pasta in a dish or bowl, and garnish with the reserved sauteed celery and vegan Parmesan cheese if desired. Enjoy!
