Add Sea Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper Flakes, Thyme, mix well and cook for another minute to marry the spices.

Add Nutritional Yeast, mix well cook for another minute.                                                          (we use Engevita Nutritional Yeast found at our local health food store here in England, for the USA see icons below!)

Add Gluten Free Flour, mix the dry flour into the Veggies, cook for another minute, this gives the veggies a nice flour coating.                                                                                             (We use Doves Farm Bread Flour found at Tesco here in England, for the USA see icons below!)

Next, add the Hemp Milk, mix well, continue cooking for another minute until the milk is nice and hot. (We use “Good Hemp” found at Tesco or Asda here in England, for the USA see icons below!)

Finally, add your drained al dente Pasta, mix well, cook for 3 minutes, lightly stirring.          (We use “Free From” found at Tesco here in England, for the USA see icons below!)
