Ingredients

  • 8 ounce box Tresomega Nutrition Quinoa Elbows Pasta
  • 1 cup Gruyère cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup milk coconut milk optional
  • 1/3 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • pink Himalayan salt to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the noodles according to the box directions. Reserve 1/4 cup of the water for use in the sauce if needed. Drain and rinse the cooked noodles then transfer them back to the pot.
  • Pour the cheese and milk over the noodles and mix until the cheese is melted. Turn the heat to low to help the cheese melt. Add the Greek yogurt and a bit of the reserved water if needed. Add salt to taste.

Notes

You can double the cheese sauce ingredients if you want an extra cheesy dish! Change the servings to 8 when doing that provides about 1/4 cup of cheese per serving.
