Ingredients

Instructions

  • Start by cooking the pasta according to package instructions.
    4 cups dry penne pasta or your choice of pasta
  • While the pasta is cooking, prepare the sauce. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a small pan and saute the whole garlic cloves for 2 minutes or until it's roasted. And keep it aside.
    2 garlic cloves
  • Strain the sun-dried tomatoes from the oil. Keep 10 -15 sliced sun-dried tomatoes aside. (check above for step by pictures with the method)
    8 oz sun dried tomato
  • Place the strained sun-dried tomatoes, almond milk, nutritional yeast, roasted garlic, 1 teaspoon chili flakes, olive oil and Italian seasonings in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. (check above for step by pictures with the method)
    1 ¼ cup almond milk warm, 3 teaspoon nutritional yeast, 1 teaspoon italaian seasoning, 2 garlic cloves, 2 tablespoon olive oil from sun dried tomatoes, salt to taste
  • Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and add it to a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the pasta and add the sliced sun-dried tomatoes, pasta water, remaining chili flakes, and chopped parsley. Mix everything together to get an even mix. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
    2 teaspoon red chili flakes, 2 -3 teaspoon chopped parsely, 2 tablespoon pasta water

Notes

  • Add your favorite roasted vegetables for extra flavor and nutrition.
  • Feel free to increase the number of spices, herbs, and seasoning for this recipe: fresh basil, red pepper flakes, and paprika to name a few.
  • Reserve the pasta water if your sauce turned out thick. You could use that to adjust the consistency.
  • Use roasted garlic instead of fresh garlic, while preparing the sauce this would bring better flavor and taste to the recipe.
  • For this sun-dried tomato pasta recipe, you can use any kind of pasta. I used penne pasta as it packs more flavor from the sauce in every bite. As for the sun-dried tomatoes, you can use any kind for that too.
  • Using tomato paste is another option, but it does not pack as much flavor as the sun-dried version.
