Equipment

  • Colander
  • Blender
  • Heavy-bottomed Pan

Ingredients
  

  • 3 cup Del Monte Farfalle Pasta You may choose any shape
  • 3/4 cup cashews around 85 gms
  • 1 medium green capsicum
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut milk any other vegan milk
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 5 cup water boiling pasta

Instructions
 

  • Soak raw cashews in warm water for 20 minutes. If they have not softened up, soak a bit longer. In the meanwhile, boil the pasta in a large container. It takes about 10 min to boil it.
  • Drain the extra water from boiled pasta using colander and check cashews for softness.
  • Blend garlic, cashews and capsicum in blender. Use water or milk to make a smooth paste.
  • Take a heavy-bottomed pan / Kadai and add olive oil to it. Add the above sauce. Mix well and cook for 2-3 min. Add salt and seasonings (oregano, red chili flakes, black pepper). Keep mixing so that sauce doesn't stick to the bottom of pan.
    If its too thick, you may add little water or milk to adjust. Add the boiled pasta and mix really well.
  • The delicious no-cheese vegan creamy capsicum pasta is ready. It took hardly 10 minutes of cooking. Enjoy with garlic bread and gravy of your choice!
