Creamy Vegan Garlic Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes RecipePrint
- 3 cups grape tomatoes; halved
- 10 ounces whole wheat pasta (such as penne linguini or fettuccini; use less if you want a higher sauce:pasta ratio)
- Olive oil
- 2 medium shallots; diced
- 8 large cloves garlic; minced/grated
- Sea salt and black pepper
- 3-4 Tbsp unbleached all purpose flour (or another thickener of choice)
- 2.5 cups Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original OR Almond Cashew Original (you could also sub up to 1 cup with veggie stock)
1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees and toss tomatoes in a bit of olive oil and sea salt. Place cut side up on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes while you prepare the rest of the dish. Then set aside.
2 Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package instructions. When done, drain, cover and set aside.
3 In the meantime, prepare the sauce. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, add 1 Tbsp olive oil and the garlic and shallot. Add a pinch of salt and black pepper and stir frequently, cooking for 3-4 minutes until softened and fragrant.
4 Stir in 3-4 Tbsp flour (or other thickener of choice - see notes) and mix with a whisk. Once combined, slowly whisk in the almond milk a little at a time so clumps don't form. Add another healthy pinch of salt and black pepper, bring to a simmer and continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. (Optional: You can also add a few shakes of vegan parmesan for extra flavor at this time if you wish)
5 If you want an ultra creamy sauce, transfer sauce to a blender (or use an immersion blender) to blend the sauce until creamy and smooth. Place back in pan and reduce heat to a low simmer until desired thickness is reached.
6 Once the sauce is to your desired thickness, taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Then add pasta and roasted tomatoes and stir.
7 Serve immediately and garnish with extra black pepper, fresh basil and/or vegan parmesan cheese.
