Instructions

  • Bring the water to a boil, add salt, and cook your pasta al dente.
  • While the pasta is cooking, put the almonds in a blender or food processor and blend for a few seconds until you get something that resembles almond meal.
  • Add the tomatoes (if using vine tomatoes, cut them in half), extra-virgin olive oil, washed basil leaves, peeled garlic clove, capers, salt, and blend until you reach a smooth, creamy consistency. Taste and add more salt if needed.
  • Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and then put it back in the pan. Add the creamy sauce and mix for a couple of minutes on low heat until warm.
  • Add some parmesan on top (vegan or not) and some fresh basil leaves, and enjoy!
