Serves 2-4 depending on your portion sizes.
1 cup raw cashews, soaked in 2 cups of water for at least 2hrs
Linguine (use about 1/2 pack for 2 servings)
1/2 jar Truffle Carpaccio in olive oil (6.35 oz) (use 1/2 of the jar for every 1 cup raw cashews). I bought mine at Costco. I have seen it on Amazon too.
1-2 tsp Garlic, minced
2 tbsp Fresh basil, chopped (optional)
Crushed red pepper
Salt/pepper to taste
Boil water, add 1 tsp salt. Add linguine bring to rapid boil. Turn heat off. Cover for 12-14 minutes. Then drain.
While linguine is cooking, drain cashews, saving 1/2 cup of the water. Put cashews and 1/2 cup water into a blender and blend until creamy.
Mix cashew cream, truffle, garlic, basil.
Put linguine on individual serving plates, top w sauce, sprinkle w crushed red pepper, decorate w a piece fresh basil, truffle, red pepper.
