100gcashew nuts – soaked overnight or soak in boiling water for 10 mins
¼tspfresh ground black pepper
juice of 1/2 a lemon
100gjarred roasted red peppers
Cook your pasta as per instructions on the pack in well salted water. While it is cooking time to make the creamy red pepper sauce sauce.
Blend all ingredients for the sauce (except the basil) till smooth.
Drain the pasta, keeping some pasta water aside. Add the drained pasta and cashew sauce to the empty pot, mix well over low heat until warmed through, adding a few tablespoons of pasta water if needed and simmer until the sauce has thickened nicely to your desired consistency.
Pick the basil leaves and roughly chop. Taste and season before serving with the chopped basil. Enjoy!!
