Got no cookies today, I just got tonight’s dinner for you instead. Pair this CREAMY COCONUT ALFREDO PASTA SAUCE with your favorite pasta! This time I used Papardelle because i was feeling like some thick noods and apparently gluten, but Greg made me make his with Banza (high maintenance hubby jkjk) and loved it, so any pasta will do! This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of sauce, and it’s so good, you’ll probably just drink the sauce and forget about the pasta part all together. Maybe.

  1. This is by far the family favorite pasta. Made it for my meat loving husband, and my toddler and both loved it! This is a regular in our home.

    • Nutritional yeast is what gives it a CHEESY flavor; as a non dairy option. If you want to use cheese, you can definitely do that! Enjoy!
