Instructions
Pasta
  1. Bring a large pot of water boil and cook pasta according to package instructions. I add a drop of avocado oil to prevent sticky pasta. When done, drain, rinse with cold water immediately and drain. Cold water rinse will give pasta an “al dent√®” texture. Set aside.
Sauce
  1. Rub tomatoes in a bit of avocado oil and pinch of Pink Himalayan salt. Place cut side up on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast (bake) for 20 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Add 1 tsp of avocado oil to medium-heat skillet. Add onion and minced garlic and sauté until transluscent, softened and fragrant.
  3. Combine cashews, tomatoes, hot pepper, lime juice, garlic, onion, cilantro, paprika, crushed red pepper flakes, and 2 cups of water in blender for ultra creamy sauce.
  4. Add salt, pepper for taste. Top with your vegan parmesean for extra flavor. You can also add to your sauce while blending.
Recipe Notes

Enjoy with fresh asparagus, spinach and/or kale! You can also add vegan sausage if you want that meat texture. As always, I recommend topping with vegan parmesean for added flavor!
