Linguini with Vegan Rose Sauce Recipe

Linguini with Vegan Rose Sauce

Although typically topped by seafood or coated with pesto, I adore Linguine with a thick coat of rose sauce.

I find that it pools deliciously in crevices between strands and either benefits a variety of caramelized vegetables added for flavor or suits the pasta on its own.

This sauce also contains a great deal of protein, making it a suitable main meal.
