Vegan Pasta Alfredo

Even when I wasn’t Vegan I probably only ate pasta alfredo a few times a year, so I found it funny when I got a craving for it! This was my first time making Vegan alfredo and I was pleasantly surprised! Pasta is definitely my weakness, so it makes me feel better eating gluten-free, brown rice pasta with vegan/organic sauces. It’s so cool that being a Vegan does not mean sacrificing the foods you love…it just means making them better 😉 Eating ‘regular’ alfredo sauce always left me with a stomach ache because of all that diary, but now it doesn’t feel like such a heavy, fattening meal.

Very quick and easy to make! I decided to serve the pasta with lots of greens! Simply steamed spinach, broccoli, and asparagus
