Cashew Alfredo Pasta with Broccoli

I was supposed to do something a bit more complicated tonight, but I wasn't feeling great after walking in the cold. Working from home the second half of tomorrow, so I'll be fancy then.


In the meantime, nothing's easier than pasta in a cashew sauce. Luckily had broccoli and cherry tomatoes on hand to dress it up.



Slightly adjusted a She Likes Food recipe | Serves: ~4 | Time: ~20 min (after soaking)


Ingredients

8 oz pasta, I did #fettuccine

1 cup + 3 tbsp plain, unsweetened cashew milk

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

2 tbsp chopped basil

1 tbsp chopped Italian parsley

2 tsp oregano

1 tsp fresh thyme leaves

1/4 tsp garlic powder

3/4 tsp salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Instructions

To make the Cashew Alfredo Sauce, add all ingredients into a blender and blend for 1-2 minutes, until smooth and creamy.


Cook the pasta according to package directions. When pasta is 3 minutes from being done, add the broccoli florets. Drain pasta and broccoli and add Alfredo sauce. Stir until combined and serve hot.
