Recipe Notes:

  • Using starch water in the frying pan will help coat the freshly cooked noodles in sauce ensuring a more flavourful meal
  • Arrowroot starch/flour is used to thicken the sauce and is preferable to cornstarch as it doesn’t have a taste. Cornstarch may be used in place of arrowroot starch but the flavour may change slightly
  • Keep your alfredo sauce warm and keep stirring it or it will break/separate. If the sauce does break it can be blended back together by processing it on low in a blender
  • Do not make the sauce too far ahead or it will break as it sits
  • Earth Island vegan parmesan cheese was used
  • Original Earth Balance butter spread was used as the vegan butter in this recipe
  • This meal can be served hot or warm
  • Fresh lemon is strongly recommended for this recipe
