This is how you make it

  1. Cook the tagliolini in plenty of boiling water for 3-4 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, make the vegan cheese. Heat olive oil in a saucepan. Add the flour and stir briefly with a whisk. Add the plant milk and keep stirring. Turn down the heat.
  3. Add the cashew butter and stir until dissolved.
  4. Turn off the heat. Add the nutritional yeast and turmeric to the sauce and stir into a nice and smooth, yellow cheese-like sauce.
  5. Finely chop the parsley.
  6. Finely chop the olives and spicy red peppers.
  7. Mix the sauce with the tagliolini, the parsley, the olives and the peppers. Garnish with a slice of lemon.
