Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Cook pasta 2 minutes less than time recommended in instructions.
Drain pasta in a colander, setting colander back over the pan to reserve the drained water. Set pasta aside.
In pan, mix 1/4 cup of the drained pasta water with the remaining ingredients (except for the rice milk). Stir and cook on low-medium heat until bubbles appear and mixture thickens, adding rice milk if mixture gets too thick.
Once desired consistency is obtained, add reserved pasta and mix in gently so the pasta doesn’t become mushy.
Brewer’s yeast is an excellent source of iron, so parents of children under 2 will want to be aware so as not to overdo the iron content.
