Cashews are the base of this delicious shrimp pasta dish. Blending the nuts helps thicken the sauce and provides creaminess—no actual cream required! Straining the cashew mixture removes any unwanted large pieces. Chopped rosemary adds freshness to break through the creaminess of the dish.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add linguine and cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside. 

  • Meanwhile, add broth and cashews to a blender. Blend until smooth, 15 to 20 seconds. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a small bowl (discard any solids).

  • Heat oil in a large high-sided skillet over medium-low heat. Add mushrooms, garlic and rosemary; cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are tender and the garlic is fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the cashew mixture, milk and soy sauce. Bring to a boil over medium heat; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, until the sauce has thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. Add shrimp; simmer, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the pasta; cook, stirring constantly, until completely coated in the sauce, about 1 minute. Top with Parmesan and crushed red pepper.
