Another summery pasta dish, yall! Citrusy, creamy, and incredibly easy to make, this recipe for pasta will leave you speechless, much like it was the first time I've tried it. And the fact that it is whole food plant-based and gluten-free is just one more reason for you to give it a go! Super easy and amazing.

Enough chitchat! Here is the recipe!

• 3 to 4 cups of al dente cooked pasta (I have used quinoa pasta)
• 11/2 cup of raw soaked cashews (or sunflower seeds, or almonds, or a combination of both, or, store-bought vegan cream)
• 1 cup (or more) of unsweetened plant-based milk
• The zest of 2 lemons and juice of 1 lemon
• 1 cup of baby arugula
• 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
• 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast

Instructions
