10 Roma tomatoes, cut in half

1 yellow onion, peeled and rough chopped 

5 cloves of garlic, peeled

1 Tbsp. chipotle powder

2 cups cashews (pre-soaked in water for 1+ hours)

6 cups rice milk

minutes). Place roasted tomatoes, onions & garlic in a blender with chipotle powder,

cashews, rice milk, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy.

Prepare Autumn Vegetables

Warm olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped autumn vegetables

(season to taste with sea salt and black pepper) and sauté for 8-10 minutes (if you

are using hearty greens, wait until the final e minutes of cooking to add them to the

skillet). Pour white wine into the skillet and cook another minute or two, until the liquid is

reduced. Transfer to bowl.

Cook the Pasta

Boil pasta in a pot of salted water until al dente, drain the pasta, then add to the bowl of

vegetables. Top with the chipotle sauce and enjoy!
