Creamy Italian Sausage Pasta

Instructions

Step 1:

Begin making the pasta as directed on packaging, cooking just until al dente. (Reserve 1 cup of pasta water).

Step 2:

While the pasta cooks, make the cashew cream by blending the cashews and milk together. If using a high wattage blender, no need to soak cashews.

Step 3:

In a large pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of oil and the "sausage." If using sausage links, use spatula or spoon to break apart into crumbles. Cook down until crumbles are golden brown or 3-4 minutes.

Step 4:

Once the sausage is browned, add the remaining oil, onion, red pepper flakes and garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

Step 5:

Pour in the wine and cook off until no liquid remains.

Step 6:

Finish with cashew cream and bring mixture to a low simmer.

Step 7:

Once the creamy mixture starts thickening, add the finished pasta, vegan parm, parsley, some of the reserved pasta water, and some salt and pepper to taste. If the mixture is still too thick add the remaining pasta water.

Step 8:

Serve immediately and enjoy!
