Simple Lemon-"Cheezy"-Rosemary Pasta
THE COZY FALL-TIME DISH GETS AN UPGRADE, THANKS TO AN HERBACEOUS CRUNCH
Bask in this plant-rich take on alfredo, and relish in the fact that a cozy pasta dish won't make you feel sluggish, as the "cheeze" element is made of nutritional yeast. The B vitamins in nutritional yeast, specifically B12, help support a healthy energy metabolism for the cells in our body. Power up, Sakaralite.
