Meal prep friendly

This vegan pasta might just be one of the easiest recipes ever. You can make it in advance and freeze it for later. I like to freeze it directly in a baking pan. It makes it even easier for later. When I’m ready to cook the pasta, I just take it out of the freezer, cover the top with tinfoil and pop it directly in the oven at 400F for around 30-35 minutes or until the pasta is heated all the way through.
It doesn’t get much easier than that on a busy day.

Which plant milk should you use

Which non-dairy milk you choose to use for this recipe is up to you. As long as it’s plain and unsweetened, all non-dairy milks will work. For the best results, I like to use either cashew milk or coconut milk. It makes the creamiest sauce and makes everything delicious.
