This is a creamy and delicious dairy free cream sauce. If you have a high speed blender, soaking the cashews is optional.

1. Place all the ingredients into your blender Blend until smooth. Taste and add more seasoning as desired. If you want your sauce a little thinner, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time.
2. In a large bowl, combine sauce with pasta, zoodles or spaghetti squash. Add roasted cherry tomatoes and vegan parmesan if desired.
3. Store any leftover or reserved sauce in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
