Pasta Ingredients

  • 1 8oz pouch Daring Lemon & Herb Plant Chicken Pieces
  • 8 oz penne pasta
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 large red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced 
  • 1 cup yellow zucchini, cut into large chunks
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • TT sale and pepper
  • Garnish with basil and parmesan cheese (plant-based or dairy)

Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Pasta sauce (we like Rao's)
  • 1 cup Raw cashews

Step 1

Add raw cashews to a bowl, cover them with water, and microwave for 1-2 minutes until soft. Drain and set aside. 

Step 2

To make the sauce, add the pasta sauce and soaked cashews to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Set aside. 

Step 3

Cook pasta according to the instructions. When draining, reserve some of the pasta water. 

Step 4

While the pasta is cooking, make the veggies. Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, add oil, and let that heat for about 30 seconds. Next, add the broccoli with some salt and pepper and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add the peppers and zucchini and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Finally, add the mushrooms and cook for another 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside. 

Step 5

Cook your Daring Lemon & Herb Plant Chicken pieces by preheating your skillet on high, then reducing to medium heat. Lightly coat the pan with 1 tbsp oil and cook 5 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally. Pieces are done when golden brown on both sides. Set aside.

Step 6

Assemble by combining the cooked pasta, the cashew sauce, and 2 tbsp of pasta water into the pan with the veggies. Mix well to combine and let warm through, about 1-2 minutes. If needed, add more pasta water to thin out the sauce.  

Step 7

Add cooked Daring pieces and cherry tomatoes and carefully mix to combine. 

Step 8

Top with basil and dairy free parmesan cheese.
