The sauce in this recipe is out of this World! It uses a mixture of an old friend, Nutritional Yeast along with regular cheese. The result is a super creamy and rich sauce that can also be used on a number of other dishes.
This dish can easily be served as a main course but could easily adapt into a starter as well, even a side dish.
