Cacio e Allepo...Maybe?

I understand this goes against all that is good and holy in Italian food. Several of my ancestors are turning over in their graves as we speak....

but I found this pasta,
I just happened to have Aleppo pepper in the spice cabinet,
and butter and cheese will make my heart here it is.

Vegan Cacio e Allepo!

Cook the pasta according to the package directions and drain. Mix with Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Spread, season with salt, nutritional yeast and the Aleppo pepper. Served with a side of steamed broccolini. The Aleppo, my first time using it, has a nice heat, slow building, not harsh like crushed red pepper flakes. 
Pretty sure leftovers will be eaten at dinner.
