This serves well with a protein as a side dish, or with the protein mixed in. This pasta is certainly rich enough to be a stand alone dish though. I can’t wait to try it with shrimp.
Other alternative milks may work, but coconut milk is not recommended because of its flavor.
Any type of poultry broth (or bone broth) or veggie broth will work. Stock may work but I’d recommend buying a low sodium version if you buy stock.
Long pasta shapes work best with this, if you use smaller, thicker pastas the cooking time may not work as well.
Nutritional yeast is not an adequate substitute for the cheeze shreds.
This recipe could be made gluten free by using a rice pasta, but the sauce may be a little thinner.
