Vegan Creamy Porcini Mushroom Alfredo Sauce

This recipe can be used with any Solenzi Pasta, but we particularly like it with our Legume pasta which is packed with plant based protein & fibre.  Choose from Red Lentil Fusilli, Green Pea Fusilli or Chickpea Gnocchetti, and get anywhere from 18.6g to 26g of protein.  The Solenzi Organic Boscaiola Porcini Mushroom & Vegetable mix adds an incredibly aromatic woodsy flavour to this pasta dish - when combined with the coconut milk, you get an intense, nutty and delicious alfredo-like cream sauce.  The vitamins & minerals you get from the naturally sun-dried vegetables in the mix and the pasta will nourish your body and your taste-buds.
