Vegan Comfort Pasta 

I saw this recipe on a friend of mine's Instagram story, and I knew I had to make it. Thank you, Rachael, for letting me share it. 

This pasta is creamy, cheezy and SUPER easy to make. Like, I'm talking only a couple dishes easy. It has quickly become a staple meal in my household for the ease of cooking and its delicious taste. It's also a complete protein meal, meaning it provides all essential amino acids - making it an excellent post workout meal.

If you are looking for more plant based meals, this one is a must try.
