Easy creamy red pepper pasta

Here is a deliciously creamy pasta dish that is such a crowd pleaser! To make this a super quick, easy dinner, we use jarred roasted peppers, a great cupboard staple, garlic powder that you can get in most stores and works even better than fresh in this creamy cashew sauce.

INGREDIENTS

300 g dried wholemeal penne

SAUCE

 100 g cashew nuts – soaked overnight or soak in boiling water for 10 mins

 500 ml oat milk

 1 tsp salt

 ¼ tsp fresh ground black pepper

 1 tsp garlic powder

 juice of 1/2 a lemon

 100 g jarred roasted red peppers

TO GARNISH

 20 g fresh basil

 DIRECTIONS

  • Cook your pasta as per instructions on the pack in well salted water. While it is cooking time to make the creamy red pepper sauce sauce.
  • Blend all ingredients for the sauce (except the basil) till smooth.
  • Drain the pasta, keeping some pasta water aside. Add the drained pasta and cashew sauce to the empty pot, mix well over low heat until warmed through, adding a few tablespoons of pasta water if needed and simmer until the sauce has thickened nicely to your desired consistency.
  • Pick the basil leaves and roughly chop. Taste and season before serving with the chopped basil. Enjoy!!
