Back Print

November 19, 2020

The team at CHEF'STORE thanks Schuman Cheese for their sponsorship and for sharing this delicious recipe with us.

Mushrooms and broccoli combined in a vegan mozzarella cheese sauce poured over al dente pasta is a dish no one can pass up. Crushed garlic, a pinch of lemon zest, and a dash of nutmeg takes the flavors to a new level. 

Every diner at your table will be digging into this delicious vegan dish! 

If you have a family of meat-lovers, you can easily include ham, chicken, or any other protein you prefer in the recipe. 

Dairy-free comfort food was never so delicious. 

Vevan Mozza, a popular product made by Schuman Cheese, is crafted by artisan cheesemakers. It melts just like dairy cheese, but is dairy, gluten, and lactose free. 

The best part? Cheese lovers won’t even notice the difference!

Our bulk and wholesale food store is delighted to share this delicious, cheesy, and dairy-free pasta recipe. This is truly holiday comfort food at its best.
