Basil Mushroomsn Cream Sauce

Directions melt margarine in sauce pan and saute garlic for 1 minute. At low temperature add flour. Stir to make a paste.

This is the basil-iest pasta sauce ever (no offense to pesto!) with only a few ingredients needed: summery basil, raw cashews, and water. The nuts are soaked for as little as 30 minutes then blended to a silky smooth consistency with cold water. Blanched basil and more water are added into the mix until everything is fully incorporated. The result is a beautifully light yet creamy sauce that’s perfect for all kinds of noodles. Yum!
