ROSE PASTA SAUCE

Day 15!! Creating a vegan rose sauce was quite possibly one of the easiest and most delicious dishes I have done.  I am such a pasta lover and you can add lots of healthy things too it as well. 

I think it really helped to soak my cashews the night before as they became really soft and created an extremely creamy texture.  The flavours were so good and the mix of spinach and mushrooms was just perfect.  Sorry, no fancy cooking words/terminology over here–just a mom who likes making easy vegan dishes.  Hope you LOVE this one.

Ingredients
  1. 1 pack of noodles of your choice (we love rose with spaghetti noodles)
  2. 1 can of diced tomatoes
  3. 1 can of tomato paste
  4. Handful of fresh basil, chopped
  5. 1 tsp of oregano
  6. 1 tsp of garlic powder
  7. 1 tsp of onion powder
  8. 1/2 large yellow onion
  9. 2-3 cloves of garlic
  10. 1-2 tbsp of olive oil
  11. 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast (optional)*
  12. 1 cup of soaked cashews
  13. 1/2 cup of water
  14. 10 mushrooms sliced
  15. 2 cups of spinach chopped
  16. Pepper
  17. Salt
Instructions
  1. Soak your cashews overnight or for at least 2-3 hours.
  2. Boil your pasta noodles as described on the box.
  3. In a separate frying pan, on medium heat sauté the yellow onion and garlic with the olive oil.
  4. Once sautéed, add the mushrooms and spinach and let cook until veggies are soft. Add the can of diced tomatoes and tomato paste.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and let these simmer for at least 20-30 minutes stirring occasionally to remove the bitter taste. Add the fresh chopped basil.
  6. Add the oregano, onion and garlic powder.
  7. In a vitamix (or any blender/processor), add your soaked cashews and the water. You'll want enough water to cover the cashews and allow them to blend creamy. Blend until creamy.
  8. Add the creamy mixture into the tomato sauce. Add in the nutritional yeast and mix until creamy.
  9. Sprinkle pepper and salt as needed. (I usually cover the surface of the pan).
  10. Let simmer on low heat for an additional 10 minutes.
  11. Pour over your choice of pasta noodles and enjoy.
Notes
  1. You can also use your ready made favourite pasta sauce for a quicker meal as well.
  2. *You can barely taste the nutritional yeast but it does offer a lot of added nutrition like B12 and thiamine (especially important if you're following a vegan diet).
