Vegan Alfredo Pasta

Have you ever met a person who didn’t like alfredo pasta? This one is more irresistible with cashew nuts, and herbs! Plus, it’s dairy-free…yes, a dairy-free Alfredo sauce! We created this recipe to celebrate #WorldPlantMilkDay, and it’s a winner. The best vegan Alfredo sauce is made rich and creamy with cashew nuts, Almond Breeze Almond Milk, Tahini and some secret veggies! The nutritional yeast gives this pasta that cheesy flavour.

This recipe is perfectly indulgent, any day of the week. The sauce is tossed through an al dente linguine
