Creamy, carby, comfort food, perfect for winter! Before I went vegan I liked the taste of creamy pastas but would feel a bit queasy partway through eating, something about the richness of dairy cream didn’t sit well. Thankfully this vegan version is just as creamy, but much lighter on the stomach (thank you cashews ??)
