lactose free creamy pasta -

In the Kitchen is where you will find all my recipes and adapted recipes, tried, tested, and eaten.

When you have as many allergies as I have, you tend to opt for a lot of at-home meals and learn to get creative in the kitchen as well as enjoy the time spent in there. In the end it’s not too bad of a situation, as it’s definitely more cost effective than eating out all the time and I have really learned to enjoy coming up with new recipes.

Today I’m coming at you with one of my recent creations. This dish is a delicious Creamy lactose-free seafood pasta is a filling and hearty pasta dish and it’s super easy to make. I have also fed this to friends of mine and the consensus is that it’s pretty damned good. Just a heads up: this recipe does include seafood. As I have previously discussed, due to dietary issues I am currently eating seafood (if you are curious why, read this). As such, some recipes on LFB will contain fish from now on, seeing as the recipes I post are things that I actually make and eat. Still, fish can always be substituted with a plant-based option if desired!

Creamy lactose-free seafood pasta

bow-tie pasta
2 peppers (one red, one orange – you will use about half of each)
soy cooking cream (this is the one I use)
cooked crawfish (or vegetarian/vegan imitation)
fresh parsley
coconut oil
salt and pepper to taste

001: Boil a pot of water and add in your pasta (For a single portion, I always fill a tumbler almost full of pasta and throw it into the pot – it’s probably around a little under 2 cups)
002: While the water is boiling, heat a pan on the stove with some coconut oil. Chop up your peppers (1 half of each color) into smaller pieces and sauté them in the pan. Add the cooked crawfish (I use a single portion size of packaged pre-cooked crawfish) and sauté everything together.
003: Add half of the soy cream into the pan and keep sautéing everything
004: Drain the pasta once it is al dente and add to the pan
005: Combine everything and wait until some of the sauce has thickened
006: Add some chopped chives, salt, and pepper and fold into the pasta, veggies and craw fish
007: Plate, add fresh parsley and cracked pepper and salt, and enjoy!

    • rae

      Thanks so much Sam – really hope you get to try this recipe out and so glad you liked the photos!

  • It’s such a pretty dish! I didn’t know soy cooking cream was a thing, I’ll have look for it here cause I’m technically lactose intolerant!

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Jane! And yes, I have heard that most of us asians are unfortunately lactose intolerant!

  • Delicious! I’m gonna try this without the seafood due to allergies :(..

    Pop over to my blog!


    • rae

      Sorry to hear about your seafood allergy, but you could definitely swap the seafood out for something else or just leave it out entirely.

  • I have so many allergies myself which is a nightmare. This looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it!

      Thanks, Leta, glad you liked the recipe, despite not loving seafood!

  • This pasta looks so delicious! It’s interesting that you cook it with coconut oil, I always use olive oil instead.. I should try your recipe for a difference! I believe it’s very tasty :)

    • rae

      I have actually started doing everything in coconut oil – the taste of coconut is very mild but adds this nice slightly sweet dimension to cooking, especially when grilling things like salmon, but of course this is up to everyone’s personal taste!

  • Honestly this just makes me super hungry and it’s 10:30pm. This is sounds so delicious and I just wanna make it now. I don’t think I’ll use coconut oil though since I don’t like coconut. Any other healthy alternatives or is olive oil good enough?

    • rae

      Oh no, I hope I have not made you too hungry! You could def. use olive oil. I am just obsessed with coconut oil and like the mild sweetness it adds.

  • Elizabeth Hisle

    Ok, YUM. I would absolutely eat this. I mostly eat at home too, but not because of allergies – I’m just poor.

    • rae

      Saving money is honestly also another reason why I love to cook at home. Leftovers are free :D

  • missgetaway

      Thanks, Martina! So glad you like the recipe!

  • Rae, this is such a wonderful post! I just pinned it on my Vegan Entrèe board (the seafood can be mixed with something else-though I’m eaten it) on Pinterest because I know I will be making this! We eat a vegan/vegetarian based diet during the week and sometimes it can be challenging to find some great recipes, thank you for sharing this!

    I hope you have a wonderful day and weekend, beautiful!



    • rae

      Oh thank you so much for pinning it and I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe! Do let me know how it turns out! And I hope you are having an awesome weekend as well!

  • Yummy! Looks so delish :)


    • rae

      Thanks, Mischelle!

  • My mom told me to not mix seafood and milk, since then I have just stayed away from that combination. I can now enjoy the taste with this!

    • rae

      Interesting! To be honest, I have never heard this before – in western culture I think it’s quite popular to mix them – for example creamy lobster pasta and lobster bisque, but I will have to look into it. Needless to say though, you are entirely right! This recipe solves the problem all together!

  • yessss, lactose-free :D Yeah! this is perfect for me :) and it looks so yummy *_*

    • rae

      Awesome, so glad you liked the recipe!

  • This looks delicious! I’d love to try it gluten free!

    Erin |

    • rae

      Thanks, Erin! And I am sure that is easily done with some gluten-free pasta!
