Creamy Cajun Mushroom Pasta

Creamy Cajun Mushroom Pasta.  This dish is one of my favorites–great spicy flavor, and so, so easy to make. Just saute vegetables, blend garlic cashew cream and add to cooked pasta.  This delicious garlic cashew cream makes every recipe better!  If you use lentil pasta as I did, you will have additional protein with every serving in addition to the vitamins and minerals from the vegetables.  Good, and good for you.  Vegan, gluten free and dairy free and ready in less than 30 minutes.
