How to Make Pasta with Creamy Spinach and Soy Sauce..............?

  1. Start by cooking the Shell pasta with lightly salted water. Reserve ½ cup pasta water and strain the pasts once cooked to Al Dante (when it's cooked all the way it'll still have a nice Al Dante bite i.e. pasta should be bit undercooked).
  2. Meanwhile, in a skillet/tawa cook onion in oil over medium heat until translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrance of the garlic goes away.
  3. At this stage add in tofu and toss to coat in onion and garlic taste and its goodness and let it stir fry a bit. Cook until tofu starts to brown, then add chopped spinach and diced mushroom stir to mix thoroughly.

  4. In another bowl, bring/whisk together cashew-almond paste, soy milk, salt, Chilli Flakes and Pepper until well combined. One should have a thick and creamy sauce.

  5. Add this creamy sauce and the reserved pasta water to the tofu and cook till becomes a thick creamy sauce again. Adjust with soy milk if you find it a little thick.
  6. Add the creamy spinach and soy sauce and the cooked pasta and stir it and cook for a while.
  7. Enjoy with garlic bread or any plain bread......!
