Recipe Card


  • 1 pound spaghetti, dry
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup cashew cream
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast


  • Step 1

    In a large stock pot over medium high heat, bring heavily seasoned water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook until al dente, about 5-7 minutes. Strain, reserving 1 cup of pasta water, and set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a medium-large pan over medium heat, heat the coconut oil and sweat the onions until translucent, 3 minutes. Add the garlic, mushrooms, parsley, salt, and pepper and cook until tender and aromatic, 5-6 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the cashew cream and season with nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper. Slowly stir in pasta water until the sauce is thick but fluid enough to coat pasta.

  • Step 4

    Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and toss together, seasoning as needed. Divide into four bowls and serve.
