Pappardelle are usually made from pasta dough with eggs. However, you can easily find a vegan version too. This type of pasta, like many others, originates from Toscana.

Vegan White Sauce For Pasta:

mushroom pappardelle White sauce is the perfect base sauce for any pasta dish. Usually, a good white sauce requires a lot of butter, cream, and other dairy products. But how to whip up delicious, nutritious, and vegan white sauce not using any dairy products?! Simple – use cashew!

Soak nuts overnight in cold water. Soaking nuts will guarantee you a smooth cashew sauce. Before blending the soaked nuts, drain and rinse them.

Grab firm mushrooms with unbroken caps. Using a paper towel, clean them if mushrooms seem dirty. Do not wash or soak mushrooms in water because you risk getting them soggy. Then slice them ​​into roughly the same sizes.

Heat a large skillet with some olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add minced garlic and fresh thyme. Saute for about 3 minutes and stir in the mushrooms. Fry for 10 minutes until the mushrooms soften and turn a deep brown color.
