Yields4 Servings
Prep Time25 mins

The magic ingredient in this recipe is the Nutritional Yeast - high protein and filled with B vitamins and gives this great flavour.

Don't get me wrong I love a pasta bake drizzled in cheese and sometimes that is what we do but I also try to give my boys a break from dairy especially Cheese, Milk and Yoghurt. While these are okay in small amounts they are highly mucous forming and highly inflammatory in large amounts.

If your kids are under the weather or have colds, flu's or sniffles it's great to make a recipe that tastes cheesy and satisfying but contains no cheese. Not so easy with pasta dishes! Until this one!
