This is a perfect weeknight dinner recipe that also makes great leftovers! This recipe is from my cookbook Liv B’s Vegan on a Budget.


  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Spanish onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 cups (750 mL) chopped red bell pepper (about 2 large)
  • 10 oz. (300 g) fettuccini pasta
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) unsweetened nondairy milk
  • 1/2 cup (125mL) raw cashews
  • 1/2 tsp (2mL) salt
  • 1/4 tsp (1mL) ground pepper


  1. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the oil, onion and garlic; cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the bell peppers; cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened. Remove from the heat.
  2. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.
  3. Add the vegetable mixture, nondairy milk and cashews to a blender, setting the frying pan aside. Blend on high speed for about 2 minutes, until smooth and creamy.
  4. Pour the sauce back into the frying pan and heat over low heat. Add the salt and pepper; stir to combine. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly so the sauce doesn’t stick to the bottom, until slightly thickened. Taste and adjust salt and pepper to your liking.
  5. Divide the pasta among 4 bowl and pour equal amounts of sauce over each.
