Instant Vegan Alfredo

Servings: 2

This sauce is really creamy and adds a nice boost of protein to an otherwise very high carb dish. I love dipping fresh toasted bread in it and also jazzing my pasta dish up with peas and broccoli. Also try adding fresh tomatoes over top in the summer for a nice, refreshing pasta dish.
