Introduction

I would call this recipe Macaroni with cashew cream and red pepper sauce. Very delicious anyway. I would call this recipe Macaroni with cashew cream and red pepper sauce. Very delicious anyway.

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Saute the onion on medium heat in a skillet for 5 minutes using water, until translucent. In a food processor, combine the onion, cashews, lemon juice, water, and salt. Gradually blend in the roasted red peppers, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and onion powder. Thoroughly toss the sauce with the pasta. Pour into pan sprayed with oil. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown on top.

*I used an emmersion blender for a creamier consistency. Oven toasted whole wheat bread crumbs added at the last would be a nice touch. Knowing how many calories this has, I will probably never make it again.

  • This is a wonderfully flavorful baked pasta dish! I can't wait to make it again and add chunks of tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini and maybe roasted bell peppers? It is a bit dry when re-heated but a layer of Daiya cheese brought it right back to super delish! It's already in my permanent recipe book:) - 2/6/13
