thrown together lemon cream pasta

I just put together a pretty decent pasta dish out of stuff around the house. Thought I'd post it and share.

3-4 cups cooked rotini pasta
1 cup plain soy yogurt
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup frozen chopped spinach
1 1/2 cups Cheezy Sauce from this recipe:

3 c water
1/4 c Rolled oats
1/4 c Nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 c Tahini
1/4 c Arrowroot powder (I used corn starch)
2 tb Lemon juice
1/8 ts Turmeric powder
2 tb Onion; minced (or 1 tb onion powder)
1/2 tb Tamari or soy sauce
1 ts Basil or herb(s) of choice (oregano, thyme and dill all work well)
ds Cayenne
1 Garlic clove; chopped (opt)

Put everything into a blender and blend until very

Pour into a small saucepan and heat until boiling,
stirring with a whisk until thick on low heat.

The cheese sauce I used was a few days old and had kind of solidified in the refrigerator, so the addition of the other ingredients was inspired as a way to thin it back out. While the pasta is boiling, whisk other ingredients together over low heat until the sauce achieves a creamy consistency. Pour over cooked pasta, stir together and serve. Add salt and pepper to taste.
