What’s In This Alfredo with Oat Milk Recipe?
- Pasta: I used a long linguine pasta, but you can use fettuccine, spaghetti, angel hair, bucatini, or any other long pasta shape!
- Olive Oil: I like to use ZOE brand because it has a great flavor, and is a good value for the quality olive oil you get.
- Garlic: you can use fresh garlic if you have it, or heirloom jarred garlic if you are making this pantry-staple friendly.
- Corn Starch: A mixture of corn starch and cold water will thicken the sauce making this an irresistible creamy and luscious pasta dish!
- Oat Milk: I used my easy homemade Unsweetened Oat Milk recipe, but you can use store-bought oat milk… just make sure to use unsweetened/unflavored! If making your own, use certified GF oats.
- Garlic Salt: for a little extra flavor and spice in this pasta.
- Fresh Ground Pepper: I use tellicherry pepper corns because they have a nice flavor with a hint of spice, and are a great value for the quality of fresh pepper corns.
- Parsley: to give the alfredo pasta sauce a bright fresh finish.

How Do I Make This Oat Milk Pasta Sauce Recipe?
- Cook pasta according to package instructions. Save 1 cup of the pasta water and set aside.
- While pasta is cooking, in a large pot heat olive oil over low heat. Add the garlic and sauté for 2 or 3 minutes until the garlic begins to brown. Sprinkle in the corn starch and stir until a thick paste forms.
- Add the oat milk, garlic salt and pepper, and stir. Add the pasta to the sauce and top with parsley. If sauce is too thick, add the cooked pasta water 1/4 cup at a time until the sauce is the consistency you prefer. If the sauce is too thin, add 1 tablespoon of corn starch and turn up the heat as you whisk!
- To make this recipe gluten free, Make sure the oats you are using are certified gluten free. While oats are naturally gluten free, there can be cross-contamination during processing, so always make sure your oats have the Certified GF stamp on the packaging if you must avoid wheat.

My girlfriend wanted a creamy pasta and I didn’t have any (vegan) cream in so I tried this instead, not expecting much as it just uses oat milk. But I was completely wrong! This was absolutely delicious and easy to make from ingredients I always have in. Also a 15 min recipe that actually only took me 15 mins!
It looks like some people have had trouble getting the sauce to thicken. A couple of tips: I think you do need to use corn flour/starch (not just plain flour) and you might need to increase the heat a decent amount. It probably took about 10 mins for me.

This turned out great, i added a few ho tchilli flakes. Thanks
So glad to hear you enjoyed it – I love the idea of adding a bit of heat 🙂
I’m a bit confused. You provided what ingredients to use, but not the measurements. How much garlic? How much black pepper? How much oat milk? How are we to create this amazing looking dish without proper measurements? I’d genuinely like to know.
I think you scrolled past the ingredient list to make this comment.

made this for myself today so that I could have dairy and GF alfredo sauce on my pasta, only made one serving. I have to say it was pretty good. I did use more cornstarch than indicated, and more minced garlic and will use even more next time, and some onion flakes. I did not have fresh parsley so I used the dried variety which I only added when I ate. I did not have any vegan parmesan so I ate it without. Next time I will add more spices (I will have to research this to find out what would give it even more flavour). Thank you

I attempted this recipe, and I was a little discouraged at first. With just a single tablespoon of flour, I couldn’t get it to thicken to save my life. I had been cooking for 30-40 minutes, and it was still really runny. I added some more flour, and continued to cook for about 20 more minutes. Ultimately, it took about 1 and a half tablespoons of flour, a higher heat, and 50-ish minutes for it to finally get to where I needed it. I will say it was very yummy once I finally got everything in check. I’ll use this recipe again, but I’ll be sure to just add a little more flour, heat, and cooking time.
