Cheesy ‘No Cheese’ Mushroom Pasta

Cheesy ‘No Cheese’ Mushroom Pasta

When making a quick pasta meal I normally always fry small tomatoes with a couple of other vegetables. Then I will throw them together with pasta and either an olive oil dressing or cashew nut cream cheese. These ingredients are normally always so tasty when cooked and tossed together.

The other day I was standing at the fridge wondering what to have for my lunch when I spotted the mushrooms. I had leftover cashew nut cream cheese as well so I decided to put these two ingredients together. The results were amazing and it’s one recipe I just had to share with you.

Cheesy ‘No Cheese’ Mushroom Pasta

Cheesy ‘No Cheese’ Mushroom Pasta was a big hit with me. Yes that’s right my husband Howard and son Ted are still not fans of mushrooms. I’m beginning to enjoy them more nowadays and this meal was delicious. Plus the sauce can be frozen so if you are making it for yourself and only want one portion you can freeze the rest. Then you have a really quick meal in the freezer. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy! Thank you xxx
