Try this vegan Alfredo sauce for a simple, dairy-free spin on a classic Italian favorite. With only 4 ingredients and extremely easy prep work, this recipe turns out ultra-creamy, decadent, and indulgent.
Bring a pot of generously salted water to a boil, then cook the pasta according to the package instructions, or until al dente. Drain the pasta and reserve the water for the sauce.
Once the pasta is done, heat a non-stick skillet over low-medium. Add the butter, Parmesan cheese, and ½ cup of hot pasta water. Melt the mixture together, while stirring fairly constantly.
If your vegan Parmesan cheese is not forming a uniform consistency with the butter and pasta water, transfer everything to a blender.
Mix the sauce on high speed until smooth and creamy, adding pasta water as needed (for reference, we added 1 ½ cups).
Transfer the sauce back to the skillet and toss it with the pasta of your choice. Add cracked black pepper directly into the sauce or as a garnish. Taste the sauce before seasoning it with salt.
