12 ounces of pasta, cooked according to the back of the package.
2 Tbsp butter, I used dairy-free
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour, substitute for gluten-free flour
1 ½ cup dairy-free milk
⅔ cup sun-dried tomatoes
1 ½ cup fresh packed spinach, (optional)
1 Tbsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp crushed red pepper
- Cook pasta according to package, drain, and set aside.
- Heat a medium pot or dutch oven on low heat and add the butter. Once melted add the flour and whisk until it becomes a clumpy paste.
- Slowly, add the milk and whisk until all clumps have smoothed out.
- Increase the heat to medium low for 3-4 minutes, whisking the entire time. You do not want it to turn into a rolling boil, this sauce can easily burn.
- Add the salt, pepper, tomato paste, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and whisk once more.
- In a large bowl add the cooked pasta, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh spinach (optional) sauce, and toss. The warm pasta sauce will cook the spinach enough without it wilting.
- Sprinkle with crushed red pepper, eat, and enjoy!
- Don’t like spinach? Make this creamy pasta without fresh spinach
- You can use sun-dried tomatoes from a package or from a jar. If you use sun-dried tomatoes from a jar just make sure to rinse, drain, and chop them into small pieces before adding them to the pasta.
- Any type of pasta like rigatoni, gnocchi, and farfalle would taste wonderful with this creamy sauce.
