Subtle Tomato and Cheesy Pasta

Hi there. Another pasta?… Absolutely. However, this pasta is the most subtle and cheesy one you will ever taste. The cheese and the subtle tomato flavours went very well together and created this gorgeous light taste. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a simple but delicious dinner. The nutritional yeast within this dish gives extra vitamins too!
