Nut-Free Vegan Romesco Sauce Pasta

Romesco sauce pasta!

Romesco usually has almonds in it but to make it #nutfree I added toasted pumpkin seeds instead and ohmygod the flavor of the roasted pumpkin seeds just makes this sauce insane. You don’t need to just use this as a pasta sauce, it can be a dip or served on top of vegetables.

Trader Joe’s makes a romesco dip (not nut free) so you can easily make your own at home and use it just as you would store bought. It really is sooo delicious and takes no time because you just add everything to a blender!

I am so in love with this recipe. I think the flavors in this sauce are just so spot on, even though it’s made with less than 10 ingredients. You just pop everything in and blend. It’s also super creamy and decadent.
