Gluten Free Pasta with Vegan Lemon Tarragon Cashew Cream Sauce
"LEMON TARRAGON CREAM SAUCE is here 🍋🌿 (& it’s vegan bc cashews are cool!) I love tarragon SO MUCH & I feel like it’s totally underrated, so consider this my petition to get it some recognition. I kid you not (and I’m not proud of this) but I licked the blender clean after making this sauce 😭"
