Guest post by Heather Hey there, Seven Roses readers! My name is Heather and I’m the author of ThePennywisePlaybook.com, a frugal living blog for budget-savvy Millennial women. One of my passions is affordable vegan cooking, so you’ll find loads of vegan recipes on my blog!

Fettuccine are probably among my favorite types of pasta, but as the Italian tradition wants, they often contain eggs,...
