Creamy Tomato Pasta

Creamy pasta
Re-vamp a simple tomato sauce with vegan cream cheese

A simple tomato sauce reinvented

I like batch cooking but I dislike having the same dinner over and over so I like to cook something easy and use simple tweaks to change things up. This is a basic tomato sauce (see xxx for recipe) and as I heated it up, I stirred in a generous spoonful of vegan cheese spread. The luxuriant creaminess really adds a new dimension to this sauce. I complemented the cheesy tang with freshly chopped chives. I also decided to add some capers as I love their tang but I think this is a possibly controversial move!

I’ve served this with spelt pasta which is my new love. It is higher in fibre than regular white pasta, obviously vegan and doesn’t seem to have the same chewiness that I’ve experienced with other wholemeal brown pasta.

If you give this recipe a go, I’d love to see your results on Instagram or Twitter- tag me @veganleanne or #veganleanne so I can have a nosey!
