RECIPE | BASIL ROSÉ PASTA (VEGAN)

Creamy Tomato Garlic Pasta.JPG

I’m really excited to share this pasta recipe with you! It’s simple, flavourful and so creamy!  When I made it, I was very happy with how it turned out - thanks to the homemade  garlic cashew cream.  You’re probably backing away from this recipe thinking, “Making cashew cream is too much work”. But I promise you it’s not and the results are worth it!  It’s as simple as putting raw cashews with water in a sealed jar and storing it in the fridge overnight.  Then the next day you would simply blend it with a couple raw garlic cloves!  You can also save this cream for usage later by freezing it. 

For this recipe, I’m using Barilla fettucine which is non-GMO, Victoria Fine Foods Marinara Sauce, fresh basil, and my home made cashew cream sauce! 

Well I hope you enjoy this recipe. If you do, please share it with your family and friends.

Take care,
Christie
