Creamy almond based pasta sauce (vegan mac n cheese)

Last night I was craving something creamy and yummy, so I searched the web in an effort to find something to satisfy my craving. I came across a lot of recipes that were very similar in nature, so I used the basic structure and tweaked it a bit. I added the addition of some spices, and next time I think I will add some spinach. Turmeric can be added for an extra orange color. The almonds and water can easily be replaced with soy, rice, or coconut milk. You may need to add a thickener though such as arrowroot, flour, or corn starch. Here is the recipe I made, and I must say it was good! I plan to eat the rest of it for lunch today.

Instructions

  1. 1Blend all of the above ingredients in the blender until smooth. I used my new Ninja.
  2. 2Cook on stove top stirring constantly for about 10 minutes.
  3. 3Pour over pasta. Enjoy!
