Ingredients

  • 400 g fettuccine
  • 150 g cashews soaked overnight
  • 400 ml water
  • 2 tablespoon yeast flakes
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • ¾ cup sun-dried tomatoes thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A handful basil

Instructions

  • Pre-soak the cashews by leaving them overnight in room temperature water or in warm water for at least 20 minutes.
  • Cook the pasta following the packet instructions. Save some pasta water to add at the end.
  • Prepare the cashew cream. Drain the water from the cashews and rinse with some cold water. Transfer them into a blender and add 400ml of water and the nutritional yeast. Blend for a couple of minutes until you have a smooth consistency.
  • Heat some oil in a pan or pot to medium heat and add the onion. When it starts to soften, add the garlic and stir to combine the ingredients.
  • After 2-3 minutes, add the sun-dried tomatoes. Keep cooking for another 2-3 minutes and then add the cashew cream. Turn the heat down to low and let the sauce reduce for a couple of minutes. The sauce will thicken fast, so remove it from the heat when it reduces to the perfect consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the cooked pasta into the sauce and adjust by adding a bit of pasta water to get the perfect creamy pasta.
  • Garnish with some finely chopped fresh basil on the top, and serve.
