Nacho Cheese ‘Chicken’ Pasta

This delicious bowl of comfort food is great for those ‘I need calories and need to forget about the day’ kind of days. A warm bowl of this and you will forget what you did all day as you will be too busy savoring every last delicious morsel of this dish. The combination of the creamy cheese sauce mixed with the ‘chicken’ make a fab meal. Great for Vegans and non-Vegans alike. This would be a well-suited recipe for dishing up at parties or BBQs.

If you enjoy this recipe then you will definitely love the recipe for a Cheesy ‘Chicken’ Cottage Pie. A satisfying mix of flavors.

Tofurky can be hard to come by but I know Ocado and ‘The Vegan Kind’ website both sell it most of the time. You could replace the Tofurky with Linda Mccartney ‘Chicken’ or another alternative if you wish.

Ingredients

  • 320 g Pasta or Macaroni
  • 1/2 tbsp Wholegrain Mustard
  • Tofurky Roasted Chicken Pieces full pack
  • Violife Soft Cheese 1 tub
  • 3 Sticks of celery
  • 3 Medium tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Plant Based Margarine I use Vitalife
  • 80 g Violife Cheddar or another plant-based alternative
  • 50 g of Nooch Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tsp Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Tumeric
  • 1 tsp  Italien Herbs
  • 2/3 tsp  Paprika
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

  1. Finely chop the celery and fry in a little water or oil for 10 minutes.

  2. Cook the pasta in a separate pan at this point.
  3. Add the tomatoes and fry for another 5 minutes until everything is soft.
  4. Add the Margarine, stir. Then add all of the herbs and the soft cheese.
  5. Cook on a low – medium heat for the cheese to melt. If you like you can add a little hot water at this point to help it along.
  6. Once your soft cheese has melted add the grated cheese and wait for that to melt.
  7. Then, add your Nooch (Nutritional Yeast) I used 100g as I love the stuff. It will make your sauce go quite thick so add some water until it’s the desired consistency and leave it to simmer for 5 minutes.
  8. Finally, drain and rinse your pasta and add it to your sauce.
  9. Serve immediately. Leftovers will be fine for the following day.
