Ingredients

Veggie Pasta

  • 8 oz whole wheat spaghetti noodles dry
  • 2.5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion large, chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 bunch asparagus cut into 1-2" pieces
  • 1 zucchini thinly sliced, cut in half moons
  • 1 cup carrots peeled, sliced thin diagonally (2 large carrots)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable broth low sodium
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Creamy White Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp ghee or butter
  • 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth low sodium
  • 1 cup Silk Unsweet Almondmilk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan more as desired
  • 3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook according to package instructions. When pasta is done cooking, drain in a colander and rinse with water.
  • While the spaghetti is cooking, drizzle some extra virgin olive oil in a very large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and minced garlic; stir occasionally and cook until onion is translucent and garlic is fragrant. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add another small drizzle of olive oil, then add chopped carrots and asparagus, 2 Tbsp vegetable broth, and cook/stir for 4-5 minutes. Then add sliced zucchini + 1 Tbsp of vegetable broth. After you have cooked zucchini for 2-3 minutes, add cherry tomatoes and cook for about 2 more minutes.
  • Once all veggies are slightly browned and crisp, transfer to large bowl with the cooked onion and garlic.
  • In the same large skillet, add 2 Tbsp ghee or butter, 2 Tbsp of whole wheat flour and stir constantly with a whisk.
  • Add 3/4 cup vegetable broth and 1 cup of Almondmilk and stir constantly until sauce begins to boil and thicken.
  • Stir in 1/2-3/4 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese and 3/4 tsp Italian seasoning.
  • Next, add cooked vegetables back in with the sauce, as well as the drained pasta and stir well until everything is evenly coated with the sauce.
  • Serve hot. Top with more Parmesan if desired.
  • One serving is roughly 1.5 cups. Recipe yields about 6 servings. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
