    Make It: Pasta Alfredo That’s Actually Good For You!

    This is a must. It doesn’t get any easier and – if you eat gluten-free you must know – a dream come true! This creamy Alfredo sauce is packed with vegan protein and tossed generously over gluten-free penne and a few greens. Quick, healthy and the perfect dinner for the slow transition into fall!

     Protein-Packed Penne Alfredo
    Serves 4

    Ingredients:
    1/2 package firm tofu, drained, cubed and soaked overnight in 1/4 cup gluten free Tamari and  1/2 cup lemon juice (soaking overnight is optional, but intensifies the flavor and I highly recommend!)
    3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    1/4 cup nutritional yeast
    1/4 cup unsweetened plain almond milk

    Directions:

    1.    Drain and dry soaked tofu.

    2.    Mix all ingredients together in a Magic Bullet, which just happens to be my new favorite tool. A blender will work too. This creates your Alfredo sauce!

    3.    Place sauce in a small pan over the stove. Cover, put to medium-low heat and allow to sit while you cook your pasta and steam your greens. As shown in the pictures, I cooked the penne al dente and steamed the broccoli.

    4.    Toss the warm sauce over the cooked pasta with greens, and enjoy!
