Creamy Cajun Mushroom Pasta

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.  If you use lentil pasta as I did, you will have additional protein with every serving.  Vegan, gluten free and dairy free and ready in less than 30 minutes.
