My sister told me about this amazing Alfredo sauce that she made. I’m not really that fond of pasta, so i never thought about making it. Anyways, when I was visiting family last weekend, we made it. It was super easy and fast. I sautéed a bunch of veggies leftover from my nephews bday party that day. The Alfredo sauce was quite delicious. I loved it so much! I made it the next night, after I was home. It’s from the Vegan Yum Yum cookbook.

The recipe says that it serves 2-3. We managed to serve 5 adults and 3 children. Mind you, we also sautéed a bunch of veggies and mixed it altogether.

I sautéed a red onion, zucchini, celery and spinach.
