In the savory section, we have a considerable collection of pistachio recipes such as the most delicious kebab in the world, gluten-free Moroccan cigars, pasta shells stuffed with pistachios in vegan blue cheese sauce, and broccoli quiche with pistachios.
In my opinion, the collection would not be complete without pasta in a rich pistachio sauce.
And which pasta is the most suitable to join this wonderful sauce? Fettuccine or Penne Rigatoni! Both will absorb this pistachio sauce well and make it super delicious.
Preparation is easy:
Fry onion and a touch of garlic, add roasted pistachio butter, almond milk, and spices, and mix well, cook until the sauce thickens. Add steamed carrot sticks, fettuccine, or penne rigatoni and mix well. Sprinkle roasted and chopped pistachios and grated vegan parmesan, and serve.
Makes four generous portions for starving people or six medium portions for mild hunger😋❣️
Enjoy, and let me know how it turned out😋
