Vegan Rose Sauce Farfalle Pasta with Roasted Veggies. Easy Vegan Tomato Cream Sauce, serve with farfalle or other pasta, roasted veggies and vegan parm. Soyfree Recipe. Can be gluten-free, nut-free
I have been craving a variety of pasta sauces and dishes lately. This Rose sauce comes together really quickly, is silky, creamy, tomatoey, herby and just perfect for a Spring Dinner or lunch.
I roasted up some veggies that I had to use up with garlic and olive oil to top the pasta. Use whichever veggies you like. Roasted cauliflower or broccoli, asparagus and others will work as well. While the veggies, roast, cook the pasta and blend the rose sauce. The sauce uses tomato sauce, herbs, cashews all blended to make a quick silky sauce. It can also be made nut-free, see recipe notes section for option. I love a crisp breadcrumb, garlic, parm topping on this dish. The crisp sprinkle over creamy sauce is amazing!
Serve warm with pasta of choice and topping as roasted veggies, vegan parm/garlic breadcrumb, pepper flakes and fresh basil.
