Pasta(penne)in cashew coriander sauce (with video)

Pasta is a regular thing at my place . I make it so often and you can see recipes with pasta coming every now and then. I try to make different kind of sauces each time though pasta with white sauce continues to be a favourite with kids. Hubby prefers the masala pasta. I love the white sauce too, but the cheese in it is overwhelming. Being health conscious, you can see my recently posted pasta recipes with less of cheese and more of healthy ingredients.penne pasta      I am relieved that even the pasta shells available nowadays are quite healthy. We get them with whole wheat or buck wheat. This time, I found one made with quinoa which is quite healthy. I am going to use this kind regularly now as my family are pasta lovers and I want to try to make it as healthy as possible.

I made the sauce with cashews and coriander this time. I have been wanting to use nuts for a long time. Cashews almost gave a cheesy taste and coriander a nice flavour. On the whole, the pasta was quite delicious and we all loved it.

pesto       I tried making a video this time too. This attempt is much better than the previous one. I am learning with each attempt and enjoying my new experience too.
