Spaghetti squash is one of my favorite foods. It’s so light and delicious, and it’s the perfect healthy noodle replacement for those of us who are gluten-free. However, because I also cannot eat tomatoes the traditional spaghetti and marinara sauce meal is out of the question, so I was a little at a loss for what to top my spaghetti squash noodles with.

Then I whipped up this creamy sauce that pairs surprisingly perfectly with the lovely squash (surprisingly because I literally just threw ingredients in the blender and hoped for the best).

It’s super rich and creamy, but not heavy like most cream-based sauces, and it’s nice and sweet as well as savory. It would probably be equally delicious on any noodles you want to pair it with.

4. Mix the cashew cream and the sage leaves into the pan and cook until the sage is fragrant.

5. Pour the contents of the pan back into the blender and blend with 6 Tbs almond milk until creamy.
