GV comments: This works really well and tastes great, especially if you get the cashews blended until they reach an absolutely smooth state. My niece made this recently and wrote to me, "So i made the pasta dish for dinner last night! It was a hit with my carnivore roommates. My roommate was watching me cook while eating pasta with velveeta cheese sauce (yuck!) and she said, 'i don't think i want this anymore.'" Yes, time to try real food, and this recipe saves you from the health risks of heavy cream but gives you the same kind of creamy goodness.
Timing: around 35 minutes if you multi-task well
Nutrition: Whole-food unprocessed (if you use whole grain pasta)
Gluten-free (if you use gluten-free pasta)
