Courgetti Carbonara with Cashew Cheese

Courgetti Carbonara with Cashew Cheese

I’m so excited about this recipe! Carbonara is such a classic dish, but what happens when you’re dairy intolerant and you can’t eat pasta? I’ve come to the rescue with my Courgetti Carbonara with Cashew Cheese.

You might not have heard of nutritional yeast but it is an amazing ingredient that gives a vegan cheese it’s taste, you don’t need lots, and it is incredibly good for you – loaded with B vitamins! You can grab it here if you can’t find it at your local health food store.
