pasta shells or elbows, cooked (I use 16 oz., you can use down to 8 oz. and be fine.)
1/3 cup of nutritional yeast (more if you like)
1/2 cup vegan soy butter
1/2 bulb of garlic, finely minced (more or less to taste)
2 whole green onions, chopped
1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of yellow mustard
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
1/4 cup of flour
1/3 cup of water
salt and pepper
Set your cooked pasta aside in a bowl or in a pot, whichever you prefer.
Saute your onions and garlic with a little olive oil in a pot until thoroughly cooked.
Add water and soy butter, let it melt on medium heat until thoroughly incorporated.
Put in your mustard and lemon juice, whisk together. Let cook for about thirty seconds, then add in your nutritional yeast, whisk, add flour, whisk.
Allow to bubble for about thirty more seconds, whisking as needed. Salt and pepper to taste, mix into noodles.
The finished consistency will be a little melty, a little clumpy, just like cheddar cheese! I made this one day when I was having a craving for good old fashioned mac and cheddar.
