RECIPE: Creamy Noodles

 

Friends, I'm on a roll. :)

I just created this last night and couldn't wait to share. Here locally we are addicted to a restaurant called Izzy's that has a creamy pasta that my boys love and fondly call mac-n-cheese. So, I decided to create a healthier version that is, of course, GF and DF.

This is super easy (not surprising if you know me😂), and it was a hit with all the boys. MOM IS WINNING!🥳 

I always make a veggie with every meal, so along with the pasta, I sautéed some broccolini and asparagus in avocado oil with some garlic and a little garlic salt. The tomatoes are fresh and local and are amazing on their own, so I didn't cook them.

I would love any feedback on this recipe if you decide to make it! Here are the ingredients and directions for this creamy dish:

Ingredients:

  • 1 8oz Kite Hill cream cheese 
  • 1/4 c nutritional yeast
  • 1 c cashew milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (or more if you love garlic)
  • 1/4 tsp pink sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 boxes of Banza shell pasta 

Directions:

  1. Put oil in pan and saute garlic for a few minutes making sure not to burn it
  2. Reduce heat and add cream cheese
  3. As the cream cheese melts, add the milk
  4. Whisk while adding the rest of the ingredients until the sauce is nice and smooth
  5. Cook the pasta as directed
  6. Mix sauce and pasta together

 

There you go! So easy and so good!

Let me know what you think!
