Paleo “Alfredo” Sauce

One of the things I missed the most when I went on the Paleo diet was pasta with Alfredo sauce. While I’ve had to say goodbye to grain-based pastas and dairy altogether, there are some tasty Paleo substitutions for my old favorites. Paleo pasta can be easily made from spaghetti squash or by cutting zucchini squash into ribbons using a vegetable spiralizer, a julienne or a vegetable peeler. This vegan and Paleo Alfredo Sauce recipe uses cashews to achieve a creamy consistency while garlic and nutritional yeast instill familiar Alfredo flavors.
