Creamy Tangy Pasta

Are you like me, drooling over creamy pasta? whatever it tastes like, as long as it's creamy.. You can still enjoy such food when you are vegan. This pasta has it all. It's creamy, salty, slightly tangy, and yeah that's it.

This is also really simple to make even if it contains cashew nuts. The cashews should be soaked before so that they can be blended into creaminess, but you can boil them for 10-15 minutes and then you have soaked cashews ready to roll!
