Serves  4 | 1 hour | Vegan, GF
Source: Minimalist Baker

1 large spaghetti squash

1/4 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts (or raw walnuts)
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp sea salt (plus more to taste)
2 cups fresh basil (packed)
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes (chopped // if in oil, drain)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Toasted pine nuts
Vegan parmesan cheese
Red pepper flakes
Garlic bread

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and line a large baking sheet (or more if increasing batch size) with foil.

  2. Carefully halve spaghetti squash lengthwise using a sharp knife. Use an ice cream scoop (or sharp spoon) to scrape out the seeds and most of the stringy parts.

  3. Brush the interior with oil and sprinkle with a little salt. Place cut-side down on baking sheet. Roast for 45 minutes, or until a knife easily pierces the skin and flesh. Remove from oven and set aside.

  4. In the meantime, add cashews, pine nuts, nutritional yeast, and sea salt to a blender or food processor and pulse until a fine meal.

  5. Add basil, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and olive oil and puree into a fine paste. If it has trouble mixing, add a bit more oil or hot water. It doesn’t need to be finely pureed, just well-mixed. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

  6. Use a fork to scoop out spaghetti squash into fine strings and divide between serving plates. Top with desired amount of pesto and lightly toss. Serve with additional toppings as desired.
