Pasta with Cream Sauce

This recipe is so quick and absolutely amazing. It literally took me 30 minutes from start to finish. I was really excited because I was starving and was not in the mood to be in the kitchen for hours. It is kind of a mix between an Alfredo and a cheese sauce but has an amazing flavor. Also you can defiantly add different vegetables to it I have just been craving broccoli and mushrooms with garlic for over a week now!

Total Cook Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 2 meals

1/2 box pasta 
1 medium head broccoli 
2 large mushrooms
4 cloves garlic
Olive oil
Vegan Parmesan 

Sauce Ingredients 

1/2 cup,almond milk
1/4 cup vanilla soy milk (optional)
2 tablespoons vegan butter
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon tahini 
DirectionsCook pasta according to directions. (This usually takes 15 minutes). Cut your broccoli and mushrooms and add with sliced garlic to a pan with some olive oil. Cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until broccoli is soft.  In a small pot combine milks, butter, yeast and tahini. Bring to a boil and add the pepper. Remove from heat to help thicken sauce. When pasta is cooked combine all ingredients in pot and mix. Serve hot with some vegan Parmesan. :)
