The past few weeks have been exceptionally busy around here. I have found myself craving nutrient- rich foods like salads and smoothies but for the opposite circumstance, when I have the feeling nothing but comfort food will be sufficient, I make pasta. My favorite summer pasta is a simple dish with blistered tomatoes, drizzled with a garlic olive oil mixture, finished with a sprinkle of basil. I usually make that dish about once a week but recently I was craving something a bit different.
I started experimenting with nutritional yeast flakes and out came this ultra creamy pasta. I wanted to add a bit more flavor so I tossed in a few sundried tomatoes and sage and the result was quite delicious. I grew up eating macaroni and cheese like it was a vegetable. It somehow always found a way onto my dinner plate next to the green beans and I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t my favorite part. This pasta mimics the flavor of traditional macaroni and cheese but is amped up a little. Serve it alongside a crispy salad and your favorite protein and you will have yourself a completely satisfying meal without wrecking your healthy eating habits.
These Frontier Co-op spices made their way into my kitchen and I have really enjoyed using them! I combined the garlic powder, onion flakes, a pinch of cayenne and the nutritional yeast flakes in this recipe to make the sauce and I feel like the flavor turned out to be really nice. If you are needing to spice up your spice rack, Frontier Co-op has just want you need. Enjoy!
