Sweet Potato Pasta


I first started this recipe hoping for a creamy sauce but I wasn’t willing to use enough cashew cheese that it needed cause that stuff is expensive!!! I’m still really happy with what I created though.  It became more oil based, but there’s so many flavours I just kept finding things and adding them and it turned out wonderfully! This meal is not just for vegans or gluten free people. The comforting taste is familiar and warming for anyone to try. Please try this recipe and let me know how it goes!
