I don’t know about you, but when it comes to old favourites, Fettucine Alfredo is sure up there. Comfort food 101, am I right?. Ok, so although I think there 100% absolutely IS a place for exact replication of said creature comforts, this recipe I liken more to an evolved half full kind of Alfredo. The kind that is going to leave you glowing, and still satisfied. Win win, right?! Its that time of year where the veggie patch is in motion and starting to yield some rewards, so bonus points if you can pick fresh greens, but no judgement if you buy, lets be real. This recipe is savoury, nutty, wholesome, comforting, creamy, and just o.g. delicious. It is super easy being green with sauces like this, which….btw, are perfect dressings for your rice bowls etc. Oh yeah, i forgot, its like crazy simple to make and stores amazing in the freezer. For reals. k, get your green on, bon appetit…

Start by making your pesto that you will add in to your cream base at the end
measure all ingredients and blend in food processor or blender until your desired cosistency. pretty smooth but a little bite is always good. Season with Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
For the cream base, do all the same again…
Measure in all ingredients and blend blend blend until smooth. Prob about a minute.
Pour out creambase into a small saucepan, add in your pesto and adjust seasoning again with salt and pepper. Bring to sauce up to serving temp and voila. Toss toss toss, with your pasta and plate
This mades about 2-3 cups of sauce, and will keep very well in the freezer.
Garnish, serve, and slurp
nutritional yeast is not GF – I am celiac
ALthough some brands of nutritional yeast can have cross contamination, most are indeed Gluten Free. Thank goodness we get to keep that deliciousness and all the health benefits! Here’s a great one I often use http://www.bobsredmill.com/nutritional-yeast.html It is certified GFree so folks like us don’t have to stress 🙂 I hope this helps you out.
