I kinda followed this recipe, but I added 3tbs nutritional yeast and soy milk. I didn't use more than 3 tsp of olive oil for the garlic. Next time I will toss in some Earth Balance to make it a little more creamy/buttery. I think I left it on the stove a little too long as it started to get a little curdled (I had it on the lowest setting for about 20 minutes total). Didn't affect the taste AT ALL, but it looked a little funny before dumping it on the pasta. After all was said and done, I enjoyed it. I was able to get past the fact that it wasn't a true cream sauce and all was right with the world.
Kid 3 hated it, said it tasted like ranch dressing. Kid 2 said, and I quote "this is awesome!". Kid 1 and Kid 4 ate it with ketchup (ummm really gross!).
I'm supposed to leave this family on Thursday to go "home". Home is in Massachusetts. Not sure if you've heard about this little snowstorm the entire country is getting hit with or not, but I'm telling you right now, it had better NOT mess up my travel plans. Hopefully The Dad will keep this thing updated. I've made meal time fairly easy for him. No new experimental meals will be had, all tried and true and EASY. Keep your fingers crossed that I can get the heck outta here!!!
