Creamy Tuscan Chick’n Pasta

You’ll know from my last post I made life-changing oven dried tomatoes. While a good portion of them went straight into my mouth, I did spare some for this easy-peasy pasta. ⠀

This recipe is easy, although the cashews do require soaking for 8 hours. I usually pop some in a jug of water in the morning and they’re ready for the sauce in the evening. In a rush? Pop the cashews to soak in boiling water for around 20 minutes, 30 minutes is better. ⠀

Notes

I find pasta tends to dry out in the fridge, so if you’re storing left-overs, loosen the sauce with a little bit more vegetable stock when reheating.
