This Easy Healthy Vegan Cheesy High-Protein Pasta is packed full of protein and it’s gluten-free if obviously made with high-protein gluten-free pasta. One serving contains 41+ grams of protein.
I recently purchased high protein pasta made with 3 ingredients only, so I decided to make something tasty out of it.
I couldn’t believe that you could buy high-protein pasta, and in fact, have pasta that’s good for you! The pasta I bought contains 43g per 100 grams, and also has 33g of fiber!! I have never seen anything like this before.
I know that there are many vegan cheese sauce recipes out there, but they often involve nuts, especially cashews. In this recipe, I have made it totally nut-free!
So, if you are someone who is nut-free, this recipe is for you!
