Vegan Garlic Pasta

This vegan garlic pasta recipe takes about 15 mins to cook with the creamy sauce only taking about 10 mins! It's a quick & tasty vegan dinner idea!
I made this vegan garlic pasta using minimal ingredients that you can easily find in the grocery store (or that you already have in stock!) The sauce is creamy, garlicky, savoury, and deliciously addictive. Trust me, you'll want to make this weekly it's so good!
