This creamy pasta carbonara has the rich, smokey flavour you love — minus the bacon and eggs.
We’ve all had one of those days. You lost your keys, spilled coffee on your pants, and you just remembered that lunch date...an hour too late. On a day like that, there is nothing more comforting than a steaming plate of fresh pasta.
We get it.
Our creamy pasta carbonara is the type of comfort food you’re looking for. The combination of almonds and nutritional yeast give it a rich, “cheesy” flavour. And the smoked tofu, which is a great source of plant-based protein, gives it that classic carbonara taste.
This is the perfect weeknight meal — as it comes together in about 20 minutes. And because it includes ourMuscle Power mix(another great source of plant-based protein), this pasta carbonara is great for when you need some extra carbs.
