Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4 servings
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta until al dente, reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, and then drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil over medium heat, and cook onion and garlic slices until fragrant, about 3-5 mins. You want the garlic to be light in colour, but not browned, as it will be bitter.
  3. In a high-speed blender, add the cooked garlic and onion, soaked walnuts, soy milk, vegan cheese or yeast, if using, and salt. Blend until very smooth.
  4. Add sauce to the pot you cooked your pasta in with a pinch of nutmeg, heat over medium heat. Once warmed, season with additional salt, if needed and pepper to taste.
  5. Add pasta and toss well to coat.
  6. Add reserved cooking water if the consistency is too thick.
  7. When ready to serve, garnish with the chopped parsley and more vegan parmesan cheese as desired.
