    I’ve been making this recipe on the regular ever since I discovered it. I use cashew cream and it is fabulous! It’s my go-to choice for company now (usually with pasta) and it is always a big hit. So quick and easy for an elegant and delicious meal. Thank you for creating it!

      A quick update: When I made this today for the umpteenth time (make it about once a week), I decided to add frozen peas at the end, serving it as usual over penne rigatone pasta. It worked wonderfully and also increases the nutrition (but don’t tell my husband不). Thank you again for this wonderful recipe!

    I rarely leave comments on recipes I find online. But this one was AMAZING. I made it to use with Kite Hill spinach ravioli since I’m not a fan of red sauces…and I now want to eat this with every meal, every day. I used coconut cream and fresh herbs. All of the flavors blended so well. You can taste everything, but no singular ingredient was overpowering.
