You Can’t Go Wrong With Vegan Pasta

What makes this vegan pasta dish so special?  It’s the homemade pesto sauce!  OMG yum!  Naijha uses pine nuts, fresh basil, garlic, nutritional yeast, olive oil, and salt and pepper to create the most amazing pesto sauce to smother your pasta in.  Blend it all together and like magic, you have what tastes like a super fancy high-end pesto fit for kings and queens, but it only took minutes to prepare.  This is a great dish for a dinner party because it’s easy to make in large batches, simple, and your guests will love it.  It’s not called badass pesto pasta for no reason!

This “Bad Ass Vegan” pasta recipe comes straight out of John Lewis’ cookbook from his Plant-Based Bundle program.  John, who is known as the Bad Ass Vegan, recently directed the powerful film “They’re Trying To Kill Us”.
