Creamy Rose Pasta

Dairy-Free Rose pasta sauce anyone? Love the cheesy flavour, but not the cheese? Me too. That's why I love this dairy-free pasta. It is creamy, rich and luxurious, comforting and packs in a huge nutrient punch. It is easy to make and can be done pretty quickly. Cashew nuts blend easily into a velvety sauce adding layers of flavour and satisfaction. I like this sauce with gluten-free rigatoni or chic pea shells, but really any pasta will work. Serve this with a huge green salad (try one of these delicious salads).
