We are addicted to Italian food in this house. Well, not Alfie, although he does love parmesan!
If you are a pasta lover, like us, you’ll love this creamy, dreamy pasta. It has tons of flavor and is so warm and filling! It’s one of our favorite weeknight dinners, and it’s a hit with our family and friends. Nobody can really tell it’s a healthy plant-based dish. The combination of roasted bell peppers and cashews tastes like a fancy gourmet meal. But don’t let all that deliciousness fool you, this recipe is easy to make and only uses a few basic ingredients.
Plus, it’s perfect for a freezer fanatic like me. Make extra sauce and reserve some for a busy day.
Feel free to choose whatever kind of pasta you like. I’m obsessed with whole-grain farro pasta right now! So delicious I can’t even begin to describe it, I like it better than regular pasta (and it’s a lot healthier too). Farro is an ancient grain, similar to spelt, but not quite the same. If you want to know some of its amazing benefits, check out this link.
Want to make it gluten-free? Use your GF brand of choice. I really like chickpea or brown rice pasta. Though I think farro, spelt or whole wheat work better in this case (but that’s just my opinion).
