Mac & Un-Cheeze with Peas

Mac & Un-Cheeze with Peas/nourishyourselfnow.com

If you are looking for comfort food in a hurry, this is it. Toss all your sauce ingredients into a blender, cook your pasta and thaw out your peas. Mix it all together, serve it right away or  bake it. How easy is that? And did I mention, oh sooo delicious?

 

 Serves 4

Prep time: 20 minutes (need baked sweet potato)

Cook time: 20-25 minutes

Ingredients

12 oz. of whole grain pasta (I used about ¾ package of elbows)

1 cup of peas, frozen, thawed

1 batch of Un-Cheeze Sauce

Smoked paprika for sprinkling (optional)

Extra nutritional yeast for sprinkling (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F
  • Make 1 batch of Un-Cheeze sauce
  • Cook pasta according to package direction
  • Drain pasta and stir into medium bowl
  • Add peas and mix
  • Add batch of Un-Cheeze sauce and mix thoroughly
  • Pour into an 8 x 8 baking dish
  • Sprinkle with smoked paprika and nutritional yeast, if using
  • Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes, until slightly crusty on top. Enjoy!

Variation

  • If you have a high-speed blender, continue blending the Un-Cheeze sauce until nice and warm (approx.2-3) minutes.
  • Cook your pasta, drain and return to pot, along with the peas
  • Add the warm sauce, stir to mix well and serve immediately.
  • If you like, you can sprinkle a little fresh, chopped parsley on each serving
