Pasta Con Broccoli – Dairy Free

I have a lot of friends and family that are saying bye-bye to dairy.  When I think of parting ways with dairy, I think of yummy creamy pasta and fear that I would never again be able to enjoy something so ooey gooey delicious as pasta con broccoli or fettuccine alfredo.  Well, apparently you can!

This summer I shared with you a new find, Mimic Creme, and my dairy free ice cream.  This pasta recipe uses this non-dairy cream and it’s pretty tasty and looks like the real thing!

Pasta Con Broccoli

  • 1/2 lb. Fettuccine or Bow Tie Pasta (Whole Wheat, please)
  • 2 cups Mimic Creme
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Tbsp Non-Dairy Butter Spread
  • 2 cups Broccoli
  • 3 – 4 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese (optional) or Nutritional Yeast

 Cook the pasta according to package directions.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan and stir in the garlic for about 1 min.  Add broccoli, creme and stir to warm through about 5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper as desired.

Stir in noodles and Parmesan cheese.  Season with salt and pepper as desired.

  1. That does look delicious. I love dairy! That is one of my favorite food groups. That and bread, and chocolate and wine. Oh sorry those aren’t food groups are they? Thanks for sharing such a delicious looking recipe. Come visit. We have some really great healthy recipes this month!

  2. This is perfect for me! I’m lactose intollerant, although I do often have cheese, I can’t help it. I love simplistic dishes like this and I think pasta & brocolli go perfectly together. Yum!

  3. Wow, this looks amazing. My sister is lactose intolerant and its hard to cook for her sometimes because of this. This would be a great recipe to file away for the next time she comes to visit. Great to know about the Mimic Cream too for other dishes we might make.
