Came out great for my first try!

Not much flavour, very sticky. Followed the recipe but found it to be a sticky consistency. Advice is to add more veggies of your choice for flavour and more soy milk than the recipe states.

Amazing! I am vegetarian, not vegan, so I used milk instead and added in some grana padano cheese and tossed the spaghetti in butter before adding to the sauce.
