Vegetarian sun-dried tomato pasta that is made with a delicious coconut cream sauce! The sun-dried tomato pasta sauce is made from scratch using basil, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic. This pasta dish is vegetarian and dairy free!

We are HUGE pasta lovers over here in my household. We have it on repeat at least once a week. Pasta is so versatile, easy to make and a family budget friendly meal.

I love to mix it up with different flavors of pasta sauce. Store-bought pasta sauce is a great way to go, but have you ever tried making your own? If you think it sounds like a lot, you are wrong. At least for this pasta sauce recipe. You will only need a few kitchen gadgets and ingredients and you’ll be on your way!

INGREDIENTS FOR SUN-DRIED TOMATO PASTA

  • Pasta water
  • Garlic

COOKING TIPS

  • Use sun-dried tomatoes in a jar for a more flavorful pasta sauce.
  • Season the pasta sauce after blending the ingredients together.
  • Make sure to reserve some pasta water as you will need it to thin out the cream sauce. This also allows for the sauce to blend properly with the pasta.
  • Feel free to increase the amount of spices for this recipe: basil, red pepper flakes, garlic powder and onion powder. This will make the sun-dried tomato sauce even more flavorful!
