Creamy Basil Pasta with Asparagus

This is the Creamy Basil Pasta from the Vegan Yum Yum cookbook. What makes it creamy if it’s vegan, you ask?

Cashews!

I know, right? I wouldn’t have believed it either. But there it is. I wanted to eat the entire pot of this.

Since my long run got delayed due to rain, I figured I might as well carb up with some pasta tonight. Will run tomorrow. See how that works? 🙂

This sauce is not only delicious, but super easy to make. Very few ingredients – a couple tomatoes, a little tomato paste, cashews, and some seasoning. Really! I love my food processor! (I have a KitchenAid 7-cup model).

Toss with pasta (organic whole wheat pasta, in my case!) and nom!

My friend asparagus came along for the ride. I love to have asparagus with pasta. Every time I think of Italian food, I want asparagus. Is that normal? At any rate, it’s just steamed and sprinkled with a little sea salt.

Good eats!
