also a good platform to add your favourite extras, like fresh basil and vine-ripened tomatoes…

Method

1. For the ‘cheese’ – blend the cashews and nutritional yeast in a DRY food processor or blender
until a fine crumb forms, make sure its dry before use or it wont blend properly – remove & set aside.
2. For the sauce – roughly cut the tomatoes and garlic then coat in olive oil, salt & pepper. Spread
over baking trays and roast on 180 degrees until fragrant and lightly charred.
3. Once vegetables are roasted, add the mix into a saucepan with the bay leaves and simmer until
slightly reduced remove the bay leaves, convert sauce from the saucepan into a food processor or
blender with the fresh basil leaves and pulse a few times until mixed
4. Cook the pasta following the steps on the packet.
