To make this comforting pasta, first cook the fettuccine noodles according to the package directions until slightly al dente. Drain, rinse and set aside.

While waiting for the pasta to cook- to a high-powered blender, add the raw cashews and nutritional yeast. Process for 20 seconds to 1 minute, until it is in a powder-like consistency. Next add the 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk and sun-dried tomatoes. Starting on low speed, blend for a few seconds. Then increase speed until sauce is blended and smooth. *The sauce will be thick. *If sauce is TOO thick and the blender won’t spin, add a bit more almond milk in 2 tablespoons increments. Set aside.

In a large dutch pot over medium high heat, add the vegan butter, garlic and shallots. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3-4 minutes or until shallots are starting to soften. Add the remaining 1 cup almond milk, white wine, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat slightly and simmer for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Next add the cashew cheese mix from the blender to the pot. Stir occasionally for 2-3 minutes until warm. Remove from heat.

Add the fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper (if desired) and stir well.
