I know, it's been sadly quiet over here. And I'll I have is the same old excuse, school.
I feel very thankful that it is my last semester but a little overwhelmed with the work before me.
So please hang in there with me as I tackle on this last semester - the blog has kind of been forced to take a small back seat and my time for recipe creating is limited.
Doesn't mean I'm still not itching to put some creative juices into new recipes. 

Of course, my newest recipe stars my favorite food, pasta. 
Did you know I love pasta? All you have to do is scroll through my blog Pinterest page to see ALL.THE.PASTA. 

I love this recipe because of its creamy, cheesy, and (somewhat) guilt-free. It's can be made Vegan and is Gluten and Dairy Free (per the normal).
It's a great comfort meal as the crisp fall air settles in!

*I used a vegan chicken broth
*In the photo you may see bits of chicken, I added those in later and you can obviously do not need to add in chicken if you are completely vegan.
