This simple, quick recipe is a sure way to treat those tastebuds! Surprise yourself with this cheese-free cheesy pasta recipe.



Ingredients:

Method:

1. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook the pasta.


2. While the pasta is cooking, whip out a fry pan, throw the chopped mushrooms in there to sauté.

4. Stir the sauce and then let it simmer for a few minutes (maybe 5 or so) until it becomes your desired consistency and taste.

Nutritional yeast is your answer to getting that rich cheesy flavour without the excess sodium and saturated fat.

Instead you’ll get B vitamins and protein, sounds good to me.
