Pasta with Figs and Walnuts
|Try this pasta with a unique, creamy sweet-and-savory sauce.|
|Directions||Fill pot with water, add salt, bring to a boil, and cook the pasta according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat 1 T oil over medium heat. Toast the bread crumbs for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden brown. Transfer to bowl and stir in parsley, a pinch of salt, and some pepper, and set aside.
Heat remaining oil and sauté the garlic for one minute. Add milk and let simmer gently for a few minutes, stirring frequently, until it thickens. Stir in yeast, turn off heat, and add the figs and walnut, reserving a few of each for garnish.
Toss the drained pasta with the sauce, sprinkle with bread crumbs, and garnish.
|Notes||*You can use any combination of non-dairy milks, provided that at least ¾ c is cashew milk, as that is what makes the sauce thicken. You can even use just cashew milk, but the sauce will be sweeter.
