  • 3 cups uncooked pasta (elbow or similar best)
  • 1 recipe vegan nacho cheese sauce
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 bell pepper (green or red)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter
  • 12 oz package of vegan crumbles
  • Vegan Parmesan (Optional)


  • Cook pasta according to the box instructions.  When done reserve 1/2 cup pasta water and drain.
  • While that is cooking, add all the ingredients for the vegan nacho cheese recipe into blender. Follow directions for blending. Set aside.
  • Chop up your onion, pepper, and garlic. 
  • In a large skillet, over medium heat, add some vegan butter and let melt. 
  • Add in onion and pepper and let cook for 2-3 minutes. 
  • Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. 
  • Add in vegan crumbles and let cook for 4 minutes. 
  • Pour in half the vegan cheese sauce and cooked pasta. Stir around until very well combined. 
  • If sauce needs thinned a bit, add in a splash of the reserved pasta water. 
    If cheesier pasta is desired, add more of the nacho cheese sauce. 
    Taste and add salt and pepper if desired.
  • Sprinkle some vegan parmesan on top if desired.
  • Serve!
