CREAMY Mushroom Pasta

mushrooms pasta recipe
Shell pasta with mushrooms and cream sauce in a pan

Dreamy, creamy, even steamy mushroom pasta.


But also gluten free, dairy free, and filled with nutrition?

Say it ain't sooooo!

Have you ever made a creamy sauce using cashews? It adds so much flavor and texture, without the inflammation. 

This pasta is chickpea pasta with ONE ingredient. CHICKPEAS.

Since there are no preservatives, you are going to enjoy it most when eaten the same day, rather than letting it sit in the fridge.

Remember, real food shouldn't last weeks in your fridge or pantry. Real food goes bad over a few days, this is a GOOD thing!



  • for the sauce:
  • 1 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1 lemon 
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast

  • salt and pepper
  • 1 container sliced mushrooms
  • avocado/coconut or a high heat oil

2. Drain and add cashews to blender with 3/4 cup water and the rest of the sauce ingredients. Blend until creamy.
