This Tofu Pasta Sauce is SUPER simple to throw together and your new favorite lazy dinner :)


Units Scale
  • 1 pound of pasta
  • 1 block of silken tofu (about 15oz)*
  • 1 cup of plant based milk
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 2.5 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I added 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper)


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until creamy and smooth with no lumps remaining.
  2. Pour the sauce in a medium saucepan and heat over medium until warmed through. Toss in cooked pasta until the pasta is fully covered in the sauce.
  3. Serve and enjoy! I served mine with fresh basil and some diced sun dried tomatoes.


This would technically work with other types of tofu but if you want it silky smooth, I suggest using silken tofu for this sauce!
