Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

I love a good warm and creamy pasta! 🙂 Who doesn’t?! I have been missing this kind of meal on my elimination diet since I can’t have dairy or tomatoes. When I was down in the US last week I picked up a jar of roasted red peppers and decided to make a creamy pasta sauce with them. Have you guys ever tried nutritional yeast? It is just the best thing that ever happened to vegans….Yeast is cheesy like flakes that are great for sprinkling on tofu, popcorn and making vegan mac and cheese. It adds a cheesy taste to any sauce you are making, which is hard to do with most vegan non-dairy cheeses. Even if you are not avoiding dairy this creamy and flavourful sauce will be a hit with you and your family, I promise! This weekend will be 3 weeks on my elimination diet and I am more then excited to start reintroducing food groups. 🙂 I think I will start with soy…..I miss my smoked tofu dearly.
