Dairy-Free Cheese Sauce

Kelly Favara of Wholesome-Joy.com
This Paleo cheesy sauce is the absolute bomb dot com (yeah, I went there, '90s). It's easily made by simmering 3 ingredients and is the best base for building tons of flavor! With a little fresh cracked pepper, we love to toss our spaghetti squash in this cheese sauce topped with extra large gulf shrimp!
