This. Pasta. Is. Melt. In. Your. Mouth. Delicious.
And I still can't believe I made a sauce oh so creamy that you'd swear there's no way it's dairy free.
But it is TOTALLY dairy-free guys.
Mr. Charming has been craving alfredo sauce lately. #SadPanda for Mandi. And my eighth month of pregnancy is bringing about AWESOME heartburn so tomato sauce is an enemy of mine at the moment. So what's a girl to do when she wants pasta night? Create something wonderful of course.
Chicken Apple Sausage has also been a spring staple in our meals and with baby cravings greens, so have crisp asparagus spears.
The recipe for the Sweet Onion Cream Sauce is super easy and takes no time at all. Enjoy!
2 TBSP. Olive Oil
1/3 Sweet Onion, diced (to cut the sweetness, use a white onion)
1 c. Cooked and Chopped Asparagus Stalks. (My video on cooking asparagus in under five minutes)
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
2 TBSP. Tapioca Starch
2 Cloves Minced Garlic
1 1/2 C. Dairy-Free Coconut Culinary Milk (my secret in this is that I use the So Delicious Plain Coconut Coffee Creamer instead, but either works)
1 TBSP. Lemon Juice
Black Pepper To Taste
1 c. Gluten Free Penne
1 Aidells Apple Chicken Sausage
Cook pasta to package directions, drain and set aside.
Heat a medium-large skillet over medium-high and cook diced onion and garlic until translucent.
Add 1/2 c. of coconut creamer or culinary milk to a bowl and whisk together with the tapioca starch.
Add 1 C. of the remaining coconut cream or culinary milk to the pan with the garlic and onions, mixing in the starch/cream mixture to thicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
While the sauce is thickening cook your sausage to desired doneness and cut into coins.
Once the desired thickness has been reached, turn the heat to low and add lemon juice and asparagus.
Toss the sauce with the pasta and sausage and serve hot.
So delicious guys. So, so delicious.
