Pasta with Spicy 'Cheeze' Sauce

I love getting new kitchen items :-)
This was my latest shopping adventure for the kitchen.
So of course after obtaining new pasta bowls, I had to make a new recipe to accompany my lovely new bowls!

This meal ticks all the boxes for what I want in an evening meal.

  -  Easy    
  -  Tasty
  -  Nutritious

To serve 2 you'll need:
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 1/2 cups wholemeal spiral pasta
1 can butter beans
3/4 cup soymilk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 Tablespoons tahini
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chilli
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

black pepper, to serve

Bring a pot of water to the boil & add the pasta. Simmer for approx 10 mins, then drain the beans & add to the pasta. Simmer for another 5 minutes until beans are warmed through.
While the pasta is cooking, prepare the sauce.
Combine the soymilk, nutritional yeast, tahini, lemon juice, paprika, chilli, mustard & garlic powder in a small saucepan & whisk until well combined. Put on medium heat & stir continuously for approx 5 mins until the mixture is warm & has begun to thicken.
Drain the pasta & serve over a bed of baby spinach leaves.
Top with a big spoonful of the sauce & a sprinkle of black pepper.
