alfredo noodles + caesar salad {all clean!}

We tried this simple (like, super simple!) meal while on a mini-vacation this weekend and it’s dee-lish-usss!!! Tasty alfredo noodles and yummy caesar salad. It was like real Italiano! Plus, it’s dairy free, gluten free, sugar free and guilt free. ;) The hubz raved about it, which is always a win for me!

ALFREDO NOODLES

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 oz gluten-free brown rice pasta or red lentil pasta (we used red lentil pasta)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup coconut milk, full fat
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place all ingredients in a pot.
  2. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Stir every 2-3 minutes, to keep the noodles from sticking to each other.
  4. Remove from stove once al dente (after 12-15 minutes of cooking).
  5. Eat. It. Up.
