Hello hello all my bloggy people! So, yesterday was officially the "one year birthday" of my Little House of Veggies blog. I really want to say thank you to all of you (my readers) who read, and support my site. Cooking and creating new vegan recipes is a passion of mine and it is the greatest compliment I could possibly receive to get so much positive feedback from everyone! I am so thankful to have had a part in bringing delicious vegan food to the tables of your homes! I have awesome new ideas just waiting to be created and I am so excited to get them on the blog because I know you will LOVE them! So stay tuned...
What has been your favorite recipe from the blog this year? I would love to know!
So, have any of you made the cashew cheese from my previous post yet? If not, you have got to make this one, not necessarily for spreading on sandwiches, but for this pasta recipe! It is the bomb! Think cheesy white peppered sauce. mmmmmm. My kids loved this so much, and my husband said it is the best vegan cheesy pasta he has had. I am constantly trying to create a cheesy pasta that doesnt taste "off" or like vegan cheese. And this was finally it! Even better, if you make the cashew cheese you can do sandwiches one night and then make this pasta the next with some chopped tomatoes or olives on top and have a whole new meal. This takes just seconds to put together and no effort whatsoever once the cashew cheese is made. I hope you all give this a try! This is some cheesy mac that is made entirely from healthful whole foods!
Whole grain pasta in creamy peppered white sauce
What You Need:
1 box of whole grain pasta noodles, any shape (I used fun shapes for my kids)
1 cup herbed cashew cheese
1 cup of soymilk, almond milk, rice milk, etc. (use what you like)
2 Tbsp. Earth Balance vegan Butter
salt to taste and lots of cracked pepper to taste
Sliced olives or tomatoes for topping the pasta
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain the pasta and add it back into the pot. Add teh cashew cheese, milk, and butter and stir to combine and thicken a little. Add lots of pepper (to your liking) and salt to taste. Top with olives or tomatoes and serve!
To reheat this pasta, just add a splash of soymilk and reheat to create creamy perfect reheated pasta.
