  • 1/2 onion chopped⁣
  • 3-5 cloves garlic minced⁣
  • 3 oz sun-dried tomatoes ~1 cup packed, soak in hot water to soften, then strain⁣
  • 1 14oz pack firm tofu drained and pressed of liquid⁣
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 1/2 cups pasta water + broth concentrate (like better than bouillon or just use veggie broth⁣)
  • 1/2 lemon juiced⁣
  • 1 tsp salt more to taste⁣
  • Lots of pepper⁣
  • 12 oz bow tie pasta⁣
  • Fresh basil to top⁣


  • Cook your pasta as instructed on the packaging. Reserve 3 cups of pasta water before straining. ⁣
  • While your pasta’s cooking sauté your onion and garlic until translucent. ⁣
  • Transfer to a high speed blender the sautéed onion/garlic, tofu, sun-dried tomatoes, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and pasta water/or veggie broth. Blend until smooth, adding more veggie broth if needed. You want the texture to be similar to an alfredo. ⁣
  • Pour the sauce over your pasta, taste and adjust the flavor to your liking, adding more salt/pepper if needed. ⁣


*this sauce will make a little leftover so you can store it in the fridge and use it up in 3-5 days!*
