  1. Start by adding cashews to a soup bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. While Cashews are soaking cook the pasta according to instructions. Drain, but do not rinse. toss noodles with a little oil (optional) and set aside.
  3. After 15 minutes drain cashews and add them to your Nutra bullet or Blender with the rest of the sauce ingredients except dried basil. Blend until smooth.
  4. Now add the sauce and dried basil to a heavy bottomed sauce pot or skillet. Bring to a boil, while stirring, then reduce sauce to a simmer for 1 minute. remove from heat. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper if necessary. If to thick add a little plant milk or water.
  5. Serve over Fettuccine or your favourite pasta. Garnish with a little dried parsley.
