Summary

This “cheesy” roasted red pepper sauce is delicious poured over a grain bowl, topped on spaghetti squash or mixed in with your favorite legume pasta. Nutritional yeast not only gives it a mild cheesy flavor, but it also adds a bit of protein and a vitamin B boost. Enjoy this vitamin-C rich sauce all season long to help keep away summer colds.
