  • 8 oz pasta of your choice

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews

  • 1 1/4 cups water

  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 1/4 tsp paprika

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  • Cook the pasta according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  • While the pasta is cooking, prepare the vegan cream sauce. In a high-speed blender, combine the cashews, water, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic, salt, black pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper (if using). Blend on high until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the vegan cream sauce to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the sauce is heated through.
  • Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and toss to coat in the sauce. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes to warm the pasta through.
  • Serve the pasta hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired. Enjoy!
