Ingredients

for the pasta:

for the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup raw cashew pieces
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup pasta water
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to package instructions or until al dente. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid.
  • In a large skillet, add pasta, 1/2 the can of tomatoes, beans and greens. Saute with a bit of pasta water until greens have wilted and everything is heated through, about 3 - 5 minutes. Add a splash more of pasta if it begins to get dry.
  • While the pasta and veggies are cooking, make the sauce by combining the remaining tomatoes, cashews, mustard, miso, italian seasoning and 1/4 cup the pasta water into a high powered blender. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer the sauce to the pan and cook for another few minutes until everything is evenly coated and warm. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
