This Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta is creamy, smooth, and delicious. Made with these sweet-tart tomatoes, garlic, and cashews, this pasta dish is full of flavor and surprisingly easy to make.


– 16 oz. penne, or other pasta – 2 oz. sun-dried tomatoes – 1 oz. cashews – 1 large garlic clove, peeled – 1 cup clean water – ½ cup full-fat coconut milk – 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast – ¼ tsp. sea salt – ¼ tsp. pepper – ⅛ tsp. red pepper flakes

Step 1

Place the sun dried tomatoes, cashews, and a garlic clove into a smoothie cup, along with about 2 cups of boiling water, and soak for 15 minutes.

Step 2

In the meantime, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and start cooking the pasta, according to the package instructions.

Step 3

When the sauce ingredients have soaked, drain the liquid, and add 1 cup of clean water to it. Then add in the coconut milk, nutritional yeast, and spices. Process everything until very smooth.

Step 4

Pour the sauce into a skillet and cook on low heat, just until heated through.

Step 5

Add the drained pasta to the sauce and stir well. Use some reserved pasta water to thin the sauce, if necessary.
