  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 Roma tomato + more to add chopped at the end if desired

  • 1/2 cup almond milk

  3. Combine pasta, the blender sauce, and arugula. Mix well and serve warm or cooled. Enjoy!

Notes

Add more garlic to your liking! We often use fresh garlic because it's easier -- know that fresh garlic will add a stronger flavor. You can mince the cloves and toss them in a fry pan on medium heat with a little oil for just a couple minutes (until fragrant and golden brown) if you prefer the roasted flavor! You can also substitute 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder for the 2 cloves in this recipe.

This recipe can be stretched to 6 or so servings with a little extra pasta 😉
