A Creamy Sauced Gluten-Free Pasta

Dairy-Free Creamy Goodness
Until I added the bacon.
Non-carnivores, I'm sorry. I couldn't resist. I was standing there (quite innocent!) in my humble little kitchen stirring this velvety dairy-free cream sauce (that I'd just improvised with some leftover sweet potato) listening to my pick-me-up when I'm draggin' 80's playist (Phil Collins, The Church, Suzanne Vega, Tears For Fears, Wham! and Simple Minds) when I remembered the smoky gluten-free and casein-free Sunday bacon Steve had cooked earlier.

A Creamy- Non-Dairy- Sauced Pasta with Artichokes and Bacon
Put on a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook the pasta until it is al dente.
For the Creamy No-Dairy Sweet Potato Sauce you'll need:
1/2 cup cooked sweet potato puree
2 1/2 cups unsweetened plain hemp milk (or rice milk- but it's thinner, less creamy)
4 rounded tablespoons good tasting nutritional yeast- I use KAL brand
1 rounded tablespoon of sesame tahini- may omit if allergic
A good dash or two of Simply Organic Garlic Powder, to taste
A good dash or two of Simply Organic Minced Onion, to taste
1 tablespoon cider vinegar or lemon juice- to taste
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon paprika (for orange) or turmeric (for yellow) color- may omit
1/4 cup white wine, to taste (Frey Organic is vegan/egg-free)
In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over low-medium heat, and stir in the sweet potato (I like to use a whisk to do this). Slowly add in the hemp milk, whisking to blend the sweet potato and hemp milk.
