Meatless Monday Recipe-Light Creamy Alfredo Sauce

Light Creamy Alfredo Sauce
Vegan; 30 minutes or fewer; Serves 4

I made this last night, and it was a HUGE success! Grant and Max both had 2 servings, and Bruce liked that it was the lightest Alfredo sauce that he has ever had... This recipe is SUPER quick and VERY kid friendly! I guess this will be one of the few repeat recipes, since I try to keep it fresh for all of you....

12 oz fettuccine or pasta of your choice
2 cups hemp milk (or non-dairy)
4 cloves garlic, minced
6 Tbsp. Daiya mozzarella cheese shreds
4 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
ground black pepper, to taste
ground nutmeg, just a few pinches (to taste-no more then 1/8 tsp.)
2 cups vegetables of your choice (I used broccoli, mushrooms, yellow squash and sweet bell peppers) chopped and steamed

1. Cook pasta according to package directions.

2. Steam veggies together.

3. Place in a large nonstick sauté pan (I used my cast iron skillet) non-dairy milk and garlic. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Add the Daiya cheese, continue cooking until the "cheese" melts and the sauce thickens. Add nutmeg and black pepper.

4. Stir in pasta and veggies, tossing gently and serve.
