1/4 cup soy butter
½ cup vegan cream cheese
2 t garlic powder
2 T coconut milk
½ t salt
1/8 t ground black pepper
1 pound rice spiral pasta, shells or spaghetti
4 oz cooked *Gluten free ham, bite size
½ cup cooked peas
Melt butter in a medium, non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Add vegan cream cheese and garlic powder, stirring with wire whisk until smooth. Add coconut milk, a little at a time, whisking to smooth out lumps. Stir in salt and pepper. Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired consistency. Sauce will thicken rapidly, thin with coconut milk if cooked too long. Stir peas and ham into sauce. Toss with hot pasta to serve.
