Easy Creamy Cilantro Penne
8 ounces penne
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 medium sized white squash, or zucchini
5 medium cremini mushrooms, sliced thinly
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
2-3 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise)
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
huge pinch dried red chili flakes
salt, to taste
1. Boil penne according to package directions, drain, set aside. On medium-high heat in a deep skillet, add the sesame oil and garlic and saute for about 1 minute, just long enough for the garlic to infuse the oil.
2. Add squash and mushrooms, saute for about 5 minutes. Add a tablespoon water if necessary for the veggies to cook properly.
3. Besides the penne, add the rest of the ingredients and stir into a sauce. Let simmer for about 1 minute. Add penne and stir.
Awesome. Now you've got a super flavorful dish to devour!
