Cheezy Shells and Broccoli


  • 1 lb. / 454 g bag shell pasta (gluten free if desired).
  • ½ large crown of broccoli cut into small florets and pieces (about 2 cups).
  • 4 cups / 1 qt. / 1 L. almond milk (unsweetened original).
  • 1 cup nutritional yeast.
  • 4 Tbsp. miso (Genmai brown rice).
  • 1 tsp. sugar or sweetener *optional.
  • 2 tsp. onion powder.
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder.
  • ½ tsp. turmeric powder.
  • 1 tsp. smoked Spanish paprika.
  • 8-10 Tbsp. cornstarch.
  • Herbamare or salt (as desired).
  • Pepper (as desired).


1- Bring a 5-6 quart/liter pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions or until al dente – between 9 and 11 minutes.

2- Place broccoli florets into a pot with a steamer basket.

3- In a large saucepan, heat the almond milk over medium heat and whisk in all ingredients except for the cornstarch. Use more almond milk for a thinner sauce. Taste and adjust seasonings if desired.
4- Add the cornstarch a little at a time, whisking briskly. Keep whisking until the cornstarch is well combined and you don’t see any white floating pieces. Heat to a gentle boil over medium heat, then reduce heat and cook until sauce is thickened to your liking.
5- Steam the broccoli until al dente or desired tenderness, 3-5 minutes. Be careful not to overcook. Time it to be done when your sauce is thickened and pasta is cooked and drained.
6- Pour sauce into large pot and add drained pasta. Cook pasta and sauce together over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until the pasta absorbs some of the flavor of the sauce and is softened to your liking. Add the steamed, drained broccoli pieces and gently stir.
7- Spoon shells and broccoli into bowls and serve.


Mix it up and substitute a chunk of cauliflower cut into florets or a diced red pepper for a head of broccoli, then steam as above.
Add some cooked veggie sausage or crumbled veggie patties for a ‘Mac and wieners’ or ‘cheese burger’ flavor for kids.
