This recipe is vegan

For a vegetarian version, cubed feta cheese or bocconcini (small “pearl” mozzarella balls) may be added.

For a gluten-free version, you may try substituting a gluten-free pasta (rice pasta, lentil pasta, chickpea pasta, etc). However it has not been tested with this recipe yet.
