  • This looks like the recipe from Fat Free Vegan blog. I've made this twice and it is excellent! - 4/23/14

  • This was good and super easy to make. Next time, I'm thinking of tossing some broccoli or some kind of veggie in to give it a green component. - 3/26/12

  • I liked it a lot. If you don't care for nutritional yeast, though, you won't like it so much. Also, we found that if the sauce dries out, adding water really helps it return to a smoother, creamier consistency. Don't be sheepish with the water! - 2/28/12
