Vegan Creamy Pasta Carbonara

Here’s some easy peasy tagliatelle for you all to try out!

We recently received this recipe from Francesca who is an Instagram blogger in Staffordshire.  She tells us…

“I was kindly sent loads of vegan protein pasta to try by Wellside Foods. If you’ve seen my Instagram stories over the pasta few weeks I’ve been having pasta salad for lunch almost everyday using their protein pasta but I thought I should push the boat out and try something a bit fancier this weekend! So I tried out the Loving It Vegan recipe for a creamy vegan pasta carbonara!

I always avoided using cashews because I thought they were hassle but this was so easy and quick!”

This recipe serves four people and uses our Tagliatelle range.  You can mix it up and choose from:
