First of all, make sure you soak your cashew in advance. These will help achieve a wonderful creamy sauce.
Heat olive oil in a pan and add onion. Fry for 3-4 mins until onion softens, then add garlic and fry for 2 mins.
Once cooked, remove from pan and add red pepper, skin side down. Cook for 3-4 mins, pressing pepper into pan with the back of a spoon or spatula to help it char. Flip and cook for another 3-4 mins.
Add onion, garlic, pepper, milk, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika, salt and pepper to a blender and blend until smooth.
Now is a good time to cook your pasta. Don’t forget to salt your pasta water generously.
Transfer the blended sauce to pan and bring to a simmer on low heat.
Simmer for 5 mins and add cooked pasta. Mix well, add a couple spoonfuls of pasta water to make it extra creamy and silky and then season to taste. Garnish with black pepper and chilli flakes.
