Creamy Sundried Tomato Pasta

How pretty is this bowl 💟

Oh my goodness time has gone by so quickly the past few months since restarting my wholesale business. I am so sorry it has been so long between posting recipes things have definitely been busy -especially now that I work from home. I do however enjoy being here for my girls more and hearing about their days after they get home from school while I am finishing off orders.

So I made this pasta a few weeks ago and as usual I love sharing this with loved ones. One of those lovely friends asked for the recipe so I am finally posting it!

So you will need the following ingredients –

  • 250g pasta – I used @sanremo Spelt Spirals
  • 1 medium – large sweet potato
  • 3-4 field large mushrooms – cut into large cubes
  • 1 leek – finely sliced
  • 2 large handfuls baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes plus more to mix through the pasta
  • 2 heaped tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup mylk
  • 3/4 cup cashew butter
  • 1 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
  • 2 teaspoons crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar/rice malt syrup
  • Your choice of fresh herb around 2 tablespoon. Basil, Rosemary, Dill are all yummy!!

Firstly peel and cut a medium sweet potato into cubes. Place on a baking tray with some EVO & salt. Bake at 180 degrees for around 30-40 minutes (depending on how large your cubes are!).

Next boil the pasta as directed by the packet – make sure you add EVO and a good pinch of salt. Drain and place back in the saucepan.

Now in a food processor blend together the cashew butter, mustard, garlic, mylk, nutritional yeast and the sundried tomatoes. Blend for a few minutes until it turns a pinky colour.

Pan fry off the mushroom and leek in some EVO and the coconut sugar – I add another teaspoon of garlic too, because I love garlic 🙂

Stir until mushrooms are just cooked.

Finally, pour the blended mixture into the pasta and stir through well. Now stir through all the cooked veggies and the herbs. Turn the pasta on a low – medium heat and stir gently until the pasta warms up and the sauce thickens. If it gets too thick just mix through some water. Now, season with salt & pepper and enjoy!!

So good warm or cold!!
