🍲 Ingredients

Nutritional Yeast – Nutritional yeast is so good for you, full of B vitamins, and is a great (vegan-friendly) substitute for parmesan cheese. It’s made from deactivated yeast and can easily be found in most health food aisles in grocery stores.

White Wine – White wine adds a delicious flavor to this sauce, but don’t worry, the alcohol contents cook off as you cook this sauce so you don’t have to worry about alcohol contents. This dish is safe to serve to your whole family.

👩‍🍳 How to Make White Wine Spaghetti Sauce

  1. Bring a large pot and a medium pot of water to a boil and salt generously. Add pasta to boiling water and cook according to package instructions – I used Cali-Flour Pasta! Reserve a few tablespoons of pasta water and set aside.
  2. Prep the asparagus: Cut the fibrous ends off the asparagus (about 1 inch from the bottom of the stem). Steam the asparagus for about 3 minutes until just tender. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large pan on medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil and onion.  Cook for 5 minutes or until translucent, stirring often.  Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes before adding in salt, pepper, chili flakes and nutritional yeast. Stir to combine.
  4. Stir in the white wine and cook down for 30 second to a minute. Next stir in the vegetable stock paste and cook for another minute. Add in the coconut cream and stir to combine. In a small bowl stir together corn starch and 1 tbsp water. Once combined, add it into the pan with the rest of the sauce. Finally add in the lemon juice.
  5. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce along with a few tablespoons of pasta water to loosen and combine it all together.
  6. Stir in the steamed asparagus and then top with fresh basil, lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice and shredded parmesan cheese.
