"Cheesy" Sauce (made with white beans...and kale)

1 can Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 c. Nutritional Yeast
1 handful of Kale *optional to add nutrition but if you have picky eaters, leave it out to make it a cheesy yellow "white" sauce
Garlic Powder or 1-2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
Plain Soy Milk - at least 1 c. but add as needed

Place all ingredients in a high powered blender (we use VitaMix) and blend until creamy

2 options for serving:

1.  Pour into a sauce pan and cook until bubbly, then mix with cooked pasta
2. Mix with cooked pasta and bake in oven at 350 for 20 min. until heated through

*Sauce thickens substantially when cooled so make sure to eat over pasta immediately
