Pasta with Roasted Garlic Cream Sauce and Broccoli
I was craving roasted garlic something fierce. After looking through some cookbooks and finding nothing to my liking I decided to make a sauce and toss it with some noodles and broccoli. It turned out quite good. My boyfriend covered his in Daiya and declared that excellent.
1. Roast your garlic cloves: preheat oven to 400 degrees F. On a piece of foil pile peeled garlic, drizzle with olive oil. Roast for ~20 minutes, until soft. 2. Cook pasta of choice (1/2 lb) according to directions. If adding a vegetable, prepare that as well (I steamed broccoli) 3. Add all ingredients, except EVOO, to blender. Blend thoroughly. 4. When pasta is done, drain, return to pot and add sauce (add veg also, if using). Stir to coat. Drizzle with EVOO if desired.
The pasta I used was a vegetable mix from Trader Joe's; the noodles were beet, spinach, and I can't remember the rest but it was good, and cute to boot!
I'm in my mid-twenties and currently living in San Francisco, CA. Since becoming vegan (over 3 years ago now) I have found that I love to cook; this is my food journal, what I make for myself and my loved ones (both family and friends). I welcome you!
