12 oz eggless fettuccine
2 sachets unsweetened soy or almond milk
4 oz soy cream cheese
3 Tbsp blanched sliced almonds
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast, plus more for sprinkling
1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ cup loosely packed parsley leaves, chopped
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the fettuccine according to package directions. Strain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water.
2. Add the soy milk, soy cream cheese, almonds, nutritional yeast, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to a blender and process until smooth.
3. Heat the oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring until the garlic just starts to sizzle and softens, about 1 minute. Add the soy milk mixture and 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water, bring to a simmer and cook until thick and creamy, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the fettuccini and parsley and toss to combine. Thin out with a little more pasta water if needed.
4. Divide the pasta among four bowls and sprinkle each with some nutritional yeast and a few grinds of pepper.
