This Sun-dried Tomato Spaghetti is one of my staples that I go to make over and over again. It comes together in under 30 minutes and is packed with flavour! It’s a good one, and you should make it… tonight!
Pasta brings so much comfort. It’s easy to make and lovely to share with friends. This Sun-dried Tomato Spaghetti takes it up a notch and is packed with so much flavour! It doesn’t take long to get on the table because almost everything is a pantry staple.
Can this be vegan?
Yes, this pasta can definitely be vegan. The only thing you’ll need to switch out is the cream. I highly recommend either using cashew cream that is already made, or you can actually boil the cashews in with the sauce, so they become soft and easy for blending. If you boil the cashews with the sauce, you’ll need to add in a bit more vegetable stock to thin the sauce.
Is this Sun Dried Tomato Spaghetti Gluten Free?
This recipe is gluten free as long as you use gluten free noodles. Everything else is gluten free! Just to be sure though always check the labels.
