Serves: 3 to 4 servings
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 2 tablespoons flour (or use sweet white rice flour for gluten-free)
  • 2 cups So Delicious Dairy Free Unsweetened Original Coconut Milk Beverage
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce, or more if you like it spicy!
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup dairy-free white cheddar cheese alternative
  • 4 to 6 cups cooked penne or any type of pasta (wheat-based or gluten-free)
  • Parsley, for decoration
  1. Sauté garlic in oil on medium-high until golden. This will take only seconds.
  2. Add flour and stir to thicken into a paste.
  3. Add milk beverage slowly, stirring constantly, this will thicken the mixture faster and prevent lumps.
  4. Add mustard, hot sauce and seasonings. Taste and adjust if needed.
  5. Cook for 10 minutes on medium low heat to thicken. Stir every few minutes so as not to burn the sauce.
  6. Add cheese and stir to incorporate to a thick sauce.
  7. Pour over cooked pasta, stir to mix. Dress with large parsley leaves.
