Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
For 2 servings


Heat the oil in a wide non-stick pan.
Sauté the onion with the leek and the spring onions.
We can sauté them at high temperature for 10 minutes or better (for a sweeter taste) at low temperature for 30 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and sauté until they lose their volume.
Add the vegetable cube, the paprika, the cashew cream and the PARVEGANO Savory & Nutty.
Stir and bring to a boil.
Taste and add salt and pepper according to personalpreferences.
Boil the pasta according to the instructions on the package.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pasta from the pot to the pan.
Stir well to “dress” the pasta with the sauce and serve.
Garnish with chopped parsley and extra PARVEGANO Savory & Nutty.
