Fabulous Fettucine Alfredo

Who doesn’t love good ole’ comfort food? Well….just about nobody! We can all agree that some creamy pasta is enough to warm the belly and the heart, and this vegan fettucine alfredo recipe allows everyone to enjoy it.

Fabulous Fettuccine Alfredo is non-dairy and can be made with gluten-free pasta, such as organic brown rice pasta or spaghetti squash, making it healthy as can be. When you opt for fresh spaghetti squash, you get a lighter version of the dish with added nutrients such as vitamin A, B6, magnesium and calcium, while using a gluten-free pasta will make the dish more hearty and add more carbohydrates to the mix. Tinkyada’s rice pasta is my personal favorite, but feel free to change it up and see what works for you.

So, how does one make a healthy cream sauce with no cream? The answer is cannellini beans and cauliflower! Who knew that they could be such a creamy and healthy answer to the traditional cream sauce? Wait and see just how creamy this cream sauce is sans cream. This is perfect for those who are lactose intolerant, gluten-free and looking for a hearty pasta dish full of nutrients.

Gone are the days when we have to sacrifice taste for nutrition (and vice verse). Between the natural flavors and the white flour/wheat free pasta, it’s safe to say that this is not your mother’s old school recipe that usually ends up leaving you feeling stuffed and tired (no offense, Mom).
