Servings 4 servings


  • 250 g uncooked elbow pasta (a little over 2 cups)
  • 2 tbsp dairy-free margarine
  • tbsp white rice flour
  • 2 cups plain unsweetened milk of choice (preferably on the thicker side like soy, almond, or cashew)
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • black pepper to taste


  • Bring a medium-size pot of water to boil.
  • Cook pasta according to package instructions.
  • Drain water from pasta and set pasta aside.
  • Melt the margarine in the same pot over medium heat.
  • Add the white rice flour and whisk together. Let the flour cook for about 30 seconds or until it becomes a light golden color.
  • Add the milk, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper.
  • Lower the heat to medium-low and let the sauce thicken, whisking every so often. This might take about 5-8 minutes.
  • Once the sauce has thickened, add your pasta and stir to coat.
  • Adjust seasoning if you desire.
