Sham's Seriously Simple and Amazing Alfredo
1 pound pasta, to serve (I like bowties)
1/2 cup vegan butter
5 to 7 larges cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, minced
1 to 2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 (8 ounce) tub vegan cream cheese
1 cup plain nondairy milk (I use soy), plus extra as needed
basil, to taste
oregano, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup nutritional yeast, optional
vegan breaded chicken patties, baked and cut into chunks, to serve, optional
steamed broccoli or cauliflower, to serve, optional
1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Melt butter in saucepan, add onions and garlic and cook until translucent. Add cornstarch and stir until thick.
2. Add cream cheese and stir until melted. Add milk, stir until blended, and add spices. Boil then set to simmer. Add more milk if sauce is too thick.
3. If using, add nutritional yeast, then "chicken" and broccoli/cauliflower to sauce. Pour sauce over your favorite pasta.
This recipe is dangerously delicious. Prone to defying space and time by disappearing within nanoseconds of its completion. It's even better the next day, if it lives to see it.
